  • Three referees' forms duly filled by at least one of the applicant's lecturer and two other people familiar with the applicant's academic achievements.

The above stated documents must be completed and submitted to the Postgraduate School by the deadline
in order to be considered for admission. It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that application and all supporting documents arrive by the stipulated deadline.
Decisions regarding admissions are the responsibility of the Centre's Graduate Admission
Committee, which bases its judgement on the previous academic record, submitted referee's forms, proposal, relevant cognate experience, oral assessment and additional qualifications.

Procedure for Upgrade

For Students on M.Phil and M.Phil/PhD Programmes, there will be a conversion examination to enable them
to proceed to PhD programme. The minimum requirement for progression to PhD is 60%.


The University will provide accommodation for students who are interested in living in the University's halls of residence. Interested students are advised to express their interest in campus accommodation.

Health Insurance

All admitted and fully registered students are required to register with the University Medical Centre (Jaja Clinic) to enable them access free medical care. Students are also advised to go the University Clinic with their Clinic Identity Cards which would be issued by the Clinic at the point of registration.


Library: Students are required to register with the University's main library (Kenneth Dike Library) as this would grant them access to other libraries within the University, including the Centre's library and the Faculty of Law library (Adeola Odutola Library).


There are workstations in the Centre placed at the disposal of students for their use. These workstations are equipped with up-to-date software and will be used for practicals and modelling and other needs of the students.
