We think that it’s important you note here, that there are presently 124 universities with Federal government controlling 37 universities and the state government controlling 37 universities, while the Private sector controls 50.

preferred Courses In Nigerian Universities

In total, all aspirants have a choice to choose over 570 courses from each course, which are most times, categorized into Faculties.

However, the truth about these courses is that there are some courses that have enjoyed consistent preference. We have seen where the majority of students choose these courses.

We drawing this data from what JAMB aspirants have used in their course choices in both the JAMB 2017 and jamb 2018 to show some of these courses.

These obviously would help those still in Secondary schools and future JAMB applicants know how competitive a course is, before finally locking their choice down on it. Meanwhile, let the number of competitors or applicants in a course stop you from going into it. Because you’re better than most, if not all. The choice is yours.

From the data shared by JAMB, Medicine & Surgery is the most sought-after course in the whole of Nigeria universities.

Also, out of the whole 124 universities; only 35 offer Medicine & Surgery, 16 Federal, 14 State and 4 Private universities respectively.
