Full list of science courses in Nigerian universities (JAMB approved)

There are many courses under sciences in Nigerian universities, but the reality is that many admission seekers don’t even know a lot of these courses, hence, they end up not knowing there are many courses to choose from.

In this post, I will list the science courses offered in various universities in Nigeria, which of course we expect that they are NUC or JAMB-approved, depending on the federal body in charge of regulating/approving courses.

Things to note

It is important to understand that one university may not offer all these courses. Therefore, make sure to check in JAMB brochure if the school of your offers the course you are interested in.

Please note that most polytechnics in Nigeria do not offer the “big” science courses, such as medicine and surgery, pharmacy, etc. See the list of courses offered in polytechnics in Nigeria.
