HISTORY OF THE FOUNDATION PROGRAMMES
The Foundation Programmes of the University of Lagos were initiated in 1998, with the objective of providing additional training opportunities to qualified youths of the Nation. This was in the overall educational interest of our growing young population in need of opportunities for further studies in both Nigeria, the United Kingdom and elsewhere in the world. It contributes to the efforts of the government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in expanding access to tertiary education and quality products from the University System.
In the last sixteen years of its existence, the Foundation Programmes (formerly Diploma II) have progressively provided avenues for successful candidates to gain direct admission into the 200 level of the degree programmes of the University of Lagos, through the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), and into any of the approved tertiary institutions in Nigeria and our partnering Universities in the United Kingdom and China.
