The University of Ibadan (UI) Distance Learning Centre (DLC) has fixed June 2 for the admission screening exercise for the first batch of applicants who sat for its post-UTME exam.


In a statement on Monday, Babatunde Omobowale, the director of the centre, said the exercise is for applicants who obtained a minimum of 40% in the UI-post UTME.

Omobowale said the applicants must have also changed their mode of studies to the open distance eLearning (ODeL) mode of the institution.

The varsity also announced that the examination for O’Level fresh applicants to its undergraduate programmes via the ODeL has been scheduled for June 3 and 17 respectively.


Omobowale said the application form is open to candidates with at least five relevant credit passes in WAEC or NECO for admission into 100 Level.

“Candidates seeking admission into the 200 Level with OND or HND must have obtained minimum of Upper Credit for the Direct or Fast Track Entries in undergraduate programmes including B.Sc. Computer Science, BSc Sociology, BSW Social Works, B.Sc Psychology, B.Sc Political Science, B.A Communications and Language Arts, B.Ed Educational Management,” he said.

The director of the centre added that “A” Level, NCE and first-degree holders are eligible for direct and fast-track admission upon meeting the admission requirements.


Omobowale said sitting for UTME is not required to gain admission to study in the university via the flexible ODeL mode.

He, however, said when admitted, candidates are required to effect registration on the JAMB portal for the purpose of obtaining an admission letter.

Omobowale also explained that due to the parity of esteem policy operated by UI, students on the two modes of study take the same courses and are taught by the same lecturers either physically or virtually.

“They also sit for the same standard of examinations and are ultimately awarded the same prestigious UI certificates as well as enjoy privilege of being mobilised for the National Youth Service Corp (NYSC),” he added.
