Complete Guide On how to get admission Into Niger Delta University, NDU 2022

    History and Creation of NDU

    Niger Delta University (N.D.U) is in Wilberforce island, bayelsa state of Nigeria. The school is funded by the state government established in 2000 by the then executive governor of the state, chief DSP Alamieyeseigha. With two main campus in yenagoa and the other at Amassoma, the school is one of the top rated in Nigeria.

    The main campus which is located in amassoma is in a temporary site with ongoing work on the permanent site. It has ten academic faculties including pharmacy. Other campuses include glory land, college of health sciences, and the temporary campus of the faculty of law. A new campus which is extension of the glory land campus is being developed with standard faculty buildings inter alia.

    Mode Of Admission into NDU

    NDU has two modes of admission. They are ;
    1. (a) Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (J.A.M.B) Unitary Tertiary Matriculation Examination (U.T.M.E).
    (b) Basic programme
    2. Direct entry

    Jamb UTME 

    Applicants must have a five credit pass in English language, physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics in O' level at not more two sittings. Applicants must also sit for and score above 150 in that years Utme to be qualified to sit for post Utme. The subject combination include the use of English language, chemistry, physics and biology. Note: previous years Utme cut off was 180.

    Fortunately, NDU is the only state funded school among the others without condition of catchment area. However, candidates must select NDU as first choice institution of study to be considered for admission.

    Candidates that meet the above requirements can proceed to buy the NDU post Utme form for N4000. The breakdown of the fee is N2000 for the post Utme form while N2000 is for system charge. The form is submitted online with relevant documents and details filled in by the student. Upload passport photograph and fill in O' level result, Jamb registration number and score.

    The printed application form is the requirement necessary to sit for NDU post utme. They use to use paper and pencil type post Utme but stoped for some time now due to government intervention on conduct of post Utme by universities. However, previous years post Utme is made up of use of English, physics, chemistry and biology. Each subject has 25 multiple choice questions to be answered within an hour thirty minutes. Calculators, phones, and other similar gadgets are not allowed in the screening center.

    Previous years screening involve submitting relevant credentials online and wait for email or text message for resumption. About 667 candidates applied to NDU pharmacy programme

    Basic Programme

    The only advantage is that candidates get to familiarize themselves with the school environment before gaining admission making the school stress easy. The school also claimed to give more preference to candidates who pass through this programme when giving admission to their year one students.

    This programme is designed to prepare secondary school leavers to increased their capacity to write jamb Utme.

    No entrance examination. Successful applicants are invited by text or using the university website. Lecture is on four Utme course. Candidates sit and write the utme and their admission is based on their performance in the examination. The programme run for one academic university year with two semesters. I don't know if they organise examination for their student or the admission is based solely on jamb and post Utme.

    The school fees can be paid once or maximum of twice. The first scho must be a minimum of 60 per cent and second is 40 per cent. Note that student must have paid complete school fee before the final examination. The school fees will be updated in a later date.

The second examination is organised by Jupeb body and span across three weeks. Each day consist of two paper examination with thory and practical examination.

    Time allotted is between two hours thirty minutes to three hours. Although NDU claim they organised both examination internally, I know it is a typo error because their own programme cannot be different from the other school.The school fees is not as expensive as other schools. It is just N150000. 

      The complete fees must be paid before the final examination or candidate will forfeit the admission.
