12 Less competitive courses in Nigerian higher institutions

1. Languages: If I say languages I mean our native languages like Hausa, yoruba, Igbo, Ijaw, Efik and others. With your required credentials it is easy to secure admission into any Nigerian higher institution to study languages. Teaching job and other offers are always available for languages graduates.



2.History: History is one of the underrated courses in our tertiary institutions which make it less competitive and easy to get admission in any higher institution in Nigeria.

3. Surveying: Surveying is one of the most lucrative courses in 21st century. However, it has less competition in Nigerian higher institutions, this may be unconnected with aim of the students to study professional courses like architecture and likes. I recommend this course you because we have less number if quantity surveyors In Nigeria plus high Chance of employment and less admission competition.



4. Agriculture: Agriculture needs no introduction to an average African man. The fact that our people now ignore agric make it less competitive in our Universities. With your required credentials you can easily get admission to study agriculture. The truth is agriculture remains one of the best professional courses on earth surface, with strong ability to be self dependent.

5. Education Courses: Education courses (double honours) are among the less competitive courses in our higher institutions. While honour courses are suppose to have high competition than single honour courses, the reverse is the case. This may be unconnected with strong believe that if you study education you will end up in classroom, which is simply false.

6. Zoology/Botany:
Zoology and Botany are two different branches of Biology. While zoology is the study of animal, botany is concern with the study of plants. May be because zoology is related to “Zoo”, some students assume if you study zoology you will end up in the Zoo, which is also false.

7. Veterinary medicine: The branch of medicine dealing with the disease, injuries and treatment of farm and domestic animals, is also among the less competitive courses in Nigerian Universities. As the attention of majority students is shifted to human medicine, veterinary medicine continues to be among the most lucrative and professional courses in modern world. If your intention is to study medicine I advise you to try less competitive but lucrative veterinary medicine course.


8. Material & Metallurgical Engineering: Modern day world may not be interesting without the courses like material and metallurgical engineering. However lack of career guidance leads many students to reject metallurgical engineering for many unprofessional engineering courses. As Metallurgy market is advancing in Nigeria this call for need of more metallurgical engineers. If your wish is to study engineering, I recommend less competitive metallurgical engineering to you.



9. Agricultural Engineering: A branch of agriculture dealing with , construction and improvement of farming equipments and machinery is also one of the less competitive courses in Nigerian higher institutions. As Nigerian government's attention now shifted to agriculture, agricultural engineering market is boosting in Nigeria even with recession. If you have required credentials agric engineering is worth studying in Nigeria.



10. Mathematics & statistics: Mathematics and statics are unanimously one of the difficult courses in one's academic journey. Due to that, you will hardly see a student choosing mathematics in his jamb/utme therefore, the less competition. 90℅ of mathematic students are forced to study math out of their choice. In other view, mathematicians has a high chance of getting employed due to scarcity of mathematic teachers in schools and higher institutions.

11. Radiography: Sounds like a competitive course, also sounds like professional course and of course it is. Due to the fact medical students are after medicine, pharmacy nursing and others, it now make radiography less competitive to secure admission in any Nigerian university offering the course.


12. Building technology: The twin brother of surveying also remain a less competitive course in Nigerian universities. With your required credentials, you need a little or no follow up to get admission for you to study building technology In Nigeria, with a greater chance of getting employment after graduation.
