The University of Ibadan can only admit 3,000 out of over 33,000 candidates that applied for admission into the institution for the next academic session.
Prof. Gbemisol Oke, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academics) of the institution disclosed this on Friday in Ibadan at a stakeholders’ forum, organised by the Distance Learning Centre of the institution.
She urged prospective students, who met admission requirements, but could not gain admission, to embrace Distance Learning to satisfy their needs of qualitative tertiary education.
“If we can’t meet the need of our people through the regular face-to-face mode, then we should use the Open Distance Learning.
“Education drives growth and development and it must be at the centre for any nation to make advancement,” she said.
Oke added that the university would ensure qualitative and standard distance learning education, with strict adherence to the mandate of the nation’s premier university.
