The university offers a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate programs across its eight faculties and one college.

You also need to have a minimum age of 16 years at the time of application.

However, some competitive courses like medicine, law, pharmacy, etc. require higher scores, usually above 230. You also need to register and sit for the OOU Post UTME screening exercise, which is a computer-based test that assesses your aptitude, speed, and efficiency. Your aggregate score, which is calculated by adding your UTME score divided by 8 and your Post UTME score divided by 2, will determine your chances of getting admitted into your desired course.

Direct Entry Admission Requirements for OOU

If you are applying for admission into OOU through DE, you need to have one of the following qualifications in addition to your O’level result:

  • A Diploma (HND or ND) in a relevant field to your course of study, with at least a lower credit grade.
  • An NCE with at least a merit pass for courses under the faculty of education.
  • Two A-level passes in the relevant subjects for your course of study.
