It is not more news that the strike action embarked upon by ASUU has virtually shut down Nigerian public universities. This has left many Postgraduate aplicants confused about the admission processes into the various Postgraduate schools they are applying to. For those applying to University of Lagos (UNILAG) take note of the following.
1. The sale of postgraduate application forms into  University of Lagos is still on and would close on    Thursday August 15, 2013

2. The postgraduate entrance exams into UNILAG has been postponed with no date fixed. New date would      be announced soon. Be prepared

3. Graduates with Third class applying to UNILAG for Postgraduate studies have  a chance but it depends      on the course. Courses in Education, Business Administration and Arts, Less competitive courses such as    Cell Biology and Genetics, Parasitology and Bioinformatics and more competitive courses such as          Master of Information Technology (MIT), Master of Environmental Management(MEM), MSc        Environmental Toxicology and Pollution Management e.g accepts Third Class.

4. Apart from Professional Courses such as Geosciences, Engineering, Law and so on that requires one to    do Postgraduate Diploma before Masters degree, u can actually do Masters degree directly in many other courses.

5. A Third Class graduate of Systems Engineering is ineligible to apply for MSc Systems Engineering directly but can apply to apply for MIT. Similarly, a Third Class graduate of Geology is ineligible to apply for MSc Geology directly but eligible to apply for MEM or MSc Environmental Toxicology and Pollution Management. A Third Class graduate of Chemical Engineering is ineligible to apply for MSc Chemical Engineering directly but eligible to apply for MEM.
