Starting with just three departments—Medicine, Art and Science, University of Ibadan has grown to become Nigeria’s best university with 13 faculties, today. They are Law, Arts, Agriculture, Social Sciences, Education, Veterinary Medicine, Public Health, Dentistry, Technology, Medicine etc.

If you are looking for a university that breeds intellectuals, then UI is the best choice for you. Currently, it is the 1st best university in Nigeria according to the NUC ranking.

According to the university, the vision of the institution is to “create academic and research environment for effective teaching, learning and researching to make it a world class university”.

True to this, the university has earned a noble slot for itself among other institutions of the world by ranking between 401 and 500.

Similarly, its students are known for their incredible achievements in both local and international competitions. Every year, UI students bring significant glories home in trophies, plaque and kind. After all, UI students are referred to as “bookworms”.

So you see, UI is one of the best universities you must consider among other options.

UI Admission Requirement
