Top 11 Nigerian Universities With The Fastest Academic Calendar

THE Education System in Nigeria is so slow. Four(4) years course can take up to 6 years to finish. No thanks to Asuu frequents strikes. And you wonder why our parents are sending their children to our neighbors to complete their education there? You can imagine small country like Ghana? Trouble countries like Turkey and Malaysia etc.

But the good news is that some Universities are way fast! From my research, the following Universities in Nigeria are ahead of all others:

Top 11 Nigerian Universities With The Fastest Academic Calendar

1. Federal University, Dutsin-Ma, Katsina State,
2. University of Maiduguri, (UNIMAID)
3. Rivers State University of Science and Technology, (RSUST)
4. Olabisi Onabanjo University, (OOU)
5. Osun State University, (UNIOSUN)

According to a student of The Federal University, Dutsin-Ma, Katsina State, he said his school is the fastest among all the Universities in Nigeria.
He said the current 400L students gained admission in 2012 (so they have been in school for just 2 years, 7 months and they are in their finals already!).
