Ogun State In Brief

Ogun state is located in the Southwest region of Nigeria and its capital which is Abeokuta and was created in the year 1976. Ogun state was known to have a population of about 4 million persons and the state is known to be a manufacturing hub as there are lots of manufacturing companies over there. Lots of notable persons have come from Ogun state and this state is very close to Lagos, places like Sagamu, Ijebu Ode, and other towns are in Ogun state. Staying in a place like Ogun state, you should not be worried as there are lots of universities around that you can attend, especially for those that don’t want to go too far.

Ogun is the state that has the highest number of tertiary institutions in Nigeria, be it a public school or private school you can get it there and their fees are affordable. You should know that before gaining admission into any of the university, there are some requirements which will be needed from you, these requirements have to be met before you can be given provisional admission into any of the University.

Admission Requirements Into Any Of The University In Ogun State (Public & Private)

Getting admission into any of the universities is possible, be it a private university or public university it is not difficult the way people make it sound. Before gaining admission, there are certain exams that you will need to partake in and this is compulsory for all aspiring candidates. You are expected to have at least five credits in the relevant subjects which will be needed from you and this must include mathematics and English. The department which you are applying to have the list of subjects which you must-have in your O Level results.

A combination of results can be used which is not more than two sittings and this can be your Waec and NECO, GCE, or any other which you know is relevant to the system. This result must be uploaded to the school portal of your choice when applying for admission.

(Candidates must obtain a minimum of 200 points in Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Candidate’s details must have been forwarded to the University of your choice and this is done by JAMB).

As a candidate, you should have it in mind that without meeting the required mark you will not be given admission, those who are going for courses that are very competitive like Medicine, Law, Nursing are expected to score high as there will be thousands of candidates that are applying for the same course. You are expected to score at least 250 upwards to be able to gain admission into the University.

There are so many speculations about the private university being easier to gain admission into than the public university which is very true. It is less competitive and the facilities there are top-notch, but you should know that their fees are high. Another thing is the availability of lecturers to teach them very well and practical work is being done and taken very seriously. There are lots of shortcomings in public universities but trust me when I say you can learn a lot over there and their fees are affordable.

Another requirement which you will need to gain admission into the University is that any candidate that passes through the first stage should be prepared for the next stage which is the Post Utme examination and this is used to re-test the students again and through this process, they will gain admission into the University easily. Students who apply for the private university might not go through the second process again before they admit any candidate.

Another thing that aspirants should have in mind is that they should have all their credentials ready ranging from their birth certificate, original JAMB result, WAEC results, and others. Because when given admission, these certificates will be asked for, the original will be checked and you will be asked to submit a photocopy of each of them.

Many candidates complain of not gaining admission even when they score exactly 200 in JAMB, reasons might be that they choose a competitive course and other candidates who score above them are there, or they might not score up to the desired cut off mark which is stated for each department. Every department in a university has their cut off mark and this is determined by the way candidates who applied for that course scores during their JAMB. Universities like the private ones do not really place this as criteria in admitting candidates into the desired department.

Another thing is educationally disadvantaged states, they also have the chance of gaining admission into the University and if you are from that state also you have a bigger chance of securing admission like others into the university. I believed we have highlighted some basic requirements which are needed from you as an aspiring candidate into the University be it the private university or the public university.


In conclusion, we have given you a list of Universities in Ogun state, the admission process, and the criteria which are needed for you to gain admission into the University. Ogun state is a fun and loving place to stay and it has one of the best private Universities in Nigeria.

You should also know that public universities are more affordable than the private universities and the fees are given based on your department, those who choose professional courses are expected to pay more than those who take other courses of their choice, you should also have it in mind that the requirements which are needed from you must be met so that you can have easy entry into any of the University which are listed above.
