The University of Ilorin is one of the leading universities in Nigeria with good, fast academic calendar and adequate learning resources. Ilorin, Kwara State is one of few places in Nigeria where people cam sleep with two eyes closed. Every academic year witnesses throngs of admission seekers lurching their way into the university but a very small percentage of the students are admitted.

Also, it is important to note here that The University of Ilorin is among the leading universities that give encouraging attention to DIRECT ENTRY ADMISSION especially to IJMB programme.

This post is in two parts:

1. Requirements for Direct Entry Admission using A’levels, OND, NCE or “IJMB”
