I’m not going to fool you. UNN is a wonderful school, but it does have its pros and cons. My favorite is the freedom the university experience gives me, unlike a private college. Lecturers are fair enough, however, not great! Since UNN is located in the East, the environment is very cool, your perfect state for retirement. What I love the most is the thick skin UNN allows you to develop. Your stuff is going to get stolen a few times, your heart may even get snatched by a few playboys (I must warn you ahead of time). Overall, you are going to enjoy your University experience at UNN. You just have to learn to adapt and avoid complaining. Else, you’ll find yourself hating college before you even get through half of the first semester. Lol.View more
I’m an undergraduate student in the Accountancy Department in the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. I’m in the class of 2023. I was encouraged to apply to this University in 2019 for my undergraduate studies because it’s one of the most remarkable universities in Nigeria and also the first University in my country. My school graduated a lot of past leaders that helped in the national building. Another thing I’ll recommend any newcomer to my school to visit first is its Library (Nnamdi Azikiwe Library) which was named after our first President in Nigeria. The library is so spacious and well ventilated as it assists in proper assimilation. Lecture sessions are really great because lecturers try to make lessons interactive by indulging us in presentations and quizzes before or after the lessons. Lest I forget, the school environs are nice too and so airy. Accommodation provided by the school has very close proximity to classrooms and lecture halls, so even if you are running late, you still have hope of catching up soon. There’s no perfection, but I feel like my school can do better in reducing the amounts of their new intake during freshman year so as to reduce the congestion of classrooms.View more
My program Medical Laboratory Science, was challenging from the start. That is what I loved most about it, the fact that at every point, you would have to make the effort to pass. The university placed much importance on discipline, such that as much as we had fun lives outside school, my program always reminded us we were working with human lives. The part of development in the University is however lacking as the program could do a lot with a more equipped laboratory and bigger classrooms. My lecturers are one of the bests in the country and have always proved so. I would definitely recommend anyone in Nigeria, to attend my school.View more
Lecturers are very punctual and zealous to work. Each department has its own lecture hall with adequate ventilation and lighting plus free WiFi. I love the program I applied for cause I get to learn new and exciting stuff. I’d surely recommend this school to aspiring university students because immediately after graduation, cool jobs await the graduands.View more
The university is very ok. It’s international in fact it is the best here in our country Nigeria. The environment is very conducive. The lecturers are well behaved and can relate well with students. In fact it is good to study here.View more
Well. Academically, it was a really good one save for one or two excesses you see. But then when it comes to infrastructure, very poor! And then you literally have to swear to even get the “poor” and dilapidated rooms every session, just so you can live within the school. Overall, it was an experience, some pleasant and some very unpleasant. Met good people as well!View more
UNN in my opinion is very particular about education. My department (Pharmacy) has a very good learning environment and is very well equipped too for practicals. Some of the lecturers are really warm and most of them go out of their way for you to learn despite late salary payments and low salaries too. In all, I enjoyed the school and enjoyed making friends too. But they could improve the general school environment, hostels especially because they are terrible and some departments are really not as opportune as ours. Would I recommend my school? Definitely, if you are looking for a place to study hard and graduate with good grades. But social wise, it’s a dead end.View more
The program was as expected with experienced teachers and lecturers, who give a lot of hands-on and properly prepared lectures, but the school system needs a lot of improvement, from structural to managerial. Facilities aren’t so student-friendly. Needs a lot of improvement. Would recommend it to students in the region.View more
Engineering is explicitly interesting and versatile in our present world. Nowadays, engineering has taken over a lot of technology. The program offers a better way of learning in an advanced way. Engineering has been developed in our modern technology days.View more
One experience I personally think everyone should have is attending The University of Nigeria, Nsukka. A prestigious University founded by Nnamdi Azikiwe. Friendly professors, a great learning environment and wonderful infrastructures. I am currently studying at The University of Nigeria Nsukka, and I know one of the things I really love is the fact that they give us so much room to learn, as a student majoring in Microbiology; it has been an enlightening experience to work in a laboratory. There is a vast number of academics all employed to make sure students have a fruitful learning experience.
One thing I really dislike though is the boys’ hostel. It is really crowded, not conducive and a threat to health. Most boys tend to live off the campus for this reason. One thing I really think they can improve on though is the amenities and infrastructure in the hostels. Another is the pressure the lecturers put on students to pass a course, it’s almost like you can feel them breathing down your neck to do well or drown; it has helped some people and broken some people.
Apart from this though, students have a lot of fun here at UNN, it’s the ideal University, as students have the freedom to do what they want; there are different clubs and different departments. The theatre arts students perform their plays, those are nights to look forward to; as these are live-stage performances. We also have students week, things like old school da, cultural day; where different cultures come to show their unique identity, dressing and food. I would highly recommend the University of Nigeria, as long as you are keen on learning; it’s a beautiful place to learn.
Regarding my career prospects, I have a great course advisor who not only makes sure our results are complete but informs us about scholarships available online. Seminars and conferences are organized monthly for students to familiarize themselves with their discipline. We are taught and spoken to about the prospects and opportunities in our courses. I recently found out that Microorganisms help in detecting petroleum in the soil. As a result, I look forward to doing Petroleum Microbiology and applying all I learned.
I would love for you to join me, as we have an amazing University experience.
