List of Universities Offering Arts in Nigeria

If you are looking for alternative ways to gain admission into the University without having to write JAMB, this information is for you. JAMB has really frustrated millions of students in Nigeria.

There are students that have written the examination for more than 2 years; and were even forced to leave school because they couldn’t make good JAMB score.

Actually, there is a better way of getting admission into the University without Jamb.

For several reasons, the arts faculties and departments in Nigerian universities are among the most populated categories.

First, most of these courses are affordable to many parents and self-sponsored students.

Secondly, since Nigeria’s art industry has also gone global, the government and private investors invest in this country’s art schools and make them the best on the continent.
