Requirements for University of Ibadan Admission

  • An aspiring student’s application begins with choosing the right university in JAMB registration. If you want to be admitted into the University of Ibadan, you must choose the school as your first choice during JAMB registration.
  • The applicant must choose the correct course combination for that course you want to study. Check the JAMB brochure and the school website for the available courses, the subject combinations, and the general requirements of the course you want to study.
  • You must also score high in your JAMB to be considered for admission. Your JAMB cut-off mark should be up to 180 points and above for you to stand a greater chance of gaining admission into UI. This is so because selections of candidates are made based on the candidates with the highest points.
  • Register for the University of Ibadan Post-UTME, write it, and score higher so that your aggregate score will reach the required cutoff point for the course you applied for. Meanwhile, the University Matriculation Examination (U.M.E.) minimum mark is 200. Therefore, it is safer to get above the cutoff mark to compete squarely.
  • Make sure you have your WAEC, NECO, SSCE, NABTEB results ready and complete. Some courses and faculties like the College of Medicine, and Pharmacy, accept five credits in only one sitting. While the remaining faculties like Education, Law, Arts, Agriculture, and Forestry, etc., accept five credits in one sitting or six credits in two sittings
  • Also, you can apply with Awaiting Result only when you are sure the results will be out before the Post UTME registration begins.

University of Ibadan School Fees Structure

The University of Ibadan is one of the most affordable federal government-owned universities in Nigeria. Being the first university in Nigeria, it has tried to accommodate more students by making its fees affordable to Nigerians. Although the tuition fees are low, students are expected to pay other fees depending on the course they are studying and their level of study.

Like other universities in Nigeria, for instance, Lagos State University, the University of Ibadan releases a publication on the school fees schedule per session. Again, the fees are paid yearly. New students’ school fees are a bit higher than that of the returning students. While the average tuition fee one can expect to pay at UI per session is N22,750, some departments pay higher than others.

In addition, at the University of Ibadan, just like other Nigerian universities, students can only access their course registration portal only when they have successfully paid their school fees. And if you did not register for your courses online, there is no examination for you.

UI School Fees Schedule For The 2021/2022 Academic Session

New students are to pay an acceptance fee of N35,000, and other fees like accommodation and medical fees are to be paid alongside the tuition fee. The school fees include levy and GES courses charge. Below is a list of the school fees schedule for the 2021/2022 academic session.
