It is pertinent to note that, aside from meeting up with the required cutoff marks for admission, aspirants of UI are also expected to meet other requirements for admission into any department in UI. Below are the general admission requirements for admission in the University of Ibadan (UI).

What to do if you don’t meet the required cutoff mark?

UI is a very competitive institution in Nigeria. In other words, they are strict in giving admission because a whole lot of students apply for the institution every year. Consequently, my advice to those who did not meet the admission requirements of the institution is apply for the university’s change of course form as soon as possible. That is the easiest way to still secure admission in the university.

Alternatively, if your cutoff mark is slightly below the requirements stated above, then your chances of gaining admission is still high because the school usually release both merit and supplementary admission lists.

General UI Admission Requirements for 2024

  1. Candidates must be at least, 16years of age at the time admission is offered.
  2. Candidates are expected to score, at least, 200 in JAMB UTME examination
  3. Direct entry candidates are expected to purchase and apply for JAMB Direct Entry form
  4. Candidates must possess at least an O’level Credit (C) in five relevant subjects (English Language and mathematics inclusive). O’level result can be anyone of the following: GCE, WASCE, SSCE or NECO result.
  5. Two sittings results are not allowed for courses Medicine and surgery

Other interesting facts about the University of Ibadan (UI)

1. Initial Name: It may surprise you to learn that the University of Ibadan has not always gone by the name “University of Ibadan.” “University College Ibadan” was the initial name of the organization.

At the time of its founding, it was founded as a subsidiary college under another institution. The school split from its parent university when the nation’s circumstances changed and adopted the moniker “University of Ibadan.”

2. Date of Establishment: According to modern documents and historical evidence, Nigeria’s Premier University is the country’s first school to provide degrees. Being first and best is difficult, as I already stated. The University has 74 years of illustrious life after being founded in 1948. The University of London founded it as one of several colleges.

Establishing a college in Oyo state under British rule in 1948—during the colonial era—is a major historical event in the western portion of Nigeria. However, the institution split from the British after the country gained independence in 1962, and its name was changed to University of Ibadan.

Note that Saad Abubakar, the Sultan of Sokoto, is currently the Chancellor of the University of Ibadan. Talk about birds of a feather, the Chancellor of the top University is also the ruler of the coveted “Seat of the Caliphate.”

You already know the Chancellor and Vice Chancellor of the university, who is Professor Kayode Adebowale, who was sworn in right before ASUU hit us with the strike.

6. What the Motto Means: The school’s motto, “Recte Sapere Fons,” is plainly printed on the university’s crest. This expression has Latin roots and shares the same meaning as the school anthem. Recte Sapere Fons translates as “Knowledge Is Found In Straight Thinking.” This highlights the anthem’s final lines, “For A Mind That Knows Is A Mind That Is Free,” even more. The goal of the phrase is to assist pupils internalize the value of maintaining a clear head and regularly tapping into the reservoirs of knowledge.
