- Note that admission into the Prescience Programme is strictly based on first come, first served policy and candidates must have made at least 5 credits.
- Also the Programme is meant for science students ONLY. In terms of the fees and cost of the UNIZIK prescience programme, the programme itself costs about N44,000 for those who made their result at a sitting, but costs around N45,000 for those who want to combine results. These values are still subject to verfication. Perhaps, you can help us verify the amount and leave a comment at the end of this post.
- While the money is nothing to some families, some people say it is expensive and not worth the expenses. Others say one gets to go through a lot of really useful training when passing through the programme. For instance, some students categorically use the word “really challenging” to describe the programme. This is based on people’s opinions.
- Admission is strictly based on merit.
- Acommodation is usually an issue for some students, as the hostels assigned for pre-science students have a limited number of bed spaces.
