List of Competitive Courses in UNN

Many students hope to attend University of Nigeria Nsuka, thus they list it as an option during UTME registration. If you took the UTME and post-UTME screening test and still weren’t accepted, you might be wondering what competitive majors are available at UNN. This is a common practice among students. Nevertheless, there are a select few who want to hold off on reapplying till the subsequent UTME enrollment.

Courses at UNN might be as rigorous or as relaxed as any other university. In the first place, what exactly do we mean when we say “competitive courses” and “competitive courses”? For example, if you look at the courses offered at UNN, you’ll agree that subjects like “Computer Science,” “Accounting,” “Business Administration,” “Law,” and “Mass Communications” are some of the most competitive courses registered by students who hope to gain admission to any university in Nigeria. Simply put, competitive courses are those that receive high UTME and DE registration volumes, while non-competitive courses receive lower registration volumes.

If you choose a popular major at UNN, you have a significantly better chance of getting accepted into the university, provided you meet the minimum JAMB score requirement. The risk of choosing a course with a high number of applicants is that even if you meet the requirements in terms of grade point average and test scores, you may still be rejected for admission.

If you’re a student at University of Nigeria Nsuka, whether in the arts, sciences, or business, this post will be helpful because I’ll be detailing the competitive courses offered in each department.
