It will surprise you to know that Ajayi Crowther University is one of the oldest universities in Nigeria. The university started as a CMS training institution in Abeokuta in 1853. It was named after the late Samuel Ajayi Crowther, the first bishop in Africa.
No doubt, Ajayi Crowther University is one of the best if you really want to attend a university that offers admission without JAMB. This university also allows the study of divergent courses.
Another great university for students, who want to gain admission without JAMB, is Al-Qalam University. Al-Qalam University is one of the newly established universities in Nigeria (2005). It is very important to note that Al-Qalam University is an Islamic university. It is in fact, the first Islamic university to be established in Nigeria. In light of this, you should know that Al-Qalam University does not allow all the popular courses offered in other universities. In my opinion, it is wise to verify that the course you intend to study, is allowed in the university before you go ahead to apply for it.
If you are an Islam and you want to attend one of the universities that offer admission without JAMB, Al-Qalam University is an ideal university for you. You can give them a try now!
Badcock University is one of the top private universities in Nigeria. If you really want a university that does not require JAMB to gain admission, Badcock University is probably the best for you. The only downside of this university is that, their school fee is very expensive. Nevertheless, Badcock University is still one of the best private universities in Nigeria. One of the top alumni of this prestigious university is Davido (Popular Nigerian artist). This is apparently why the university is loved by a considerable number of people in the society.
Benson Idahosa University:
Next on my list of universities that offer admission without JAMB, is the prestigious Benson Idahosa University. Benson Idahosa University was established in February, 2002 at Benin, Edo state Nigeria. It is currently one of the best private universities in Edo state today. This university has been officially recognized by NUC (Nigerian university commission) as a standard university in Nigeria. One of the reasons why I recommend this university for students, who want to gain admission without JAMB, is the numerous campuses the university has. This has greatly contributed to the good image of the university outside.
The chancellor of Benson Idahosa University is Archbishop Margaret Benson Idahosa OON. Benson Idahosa University also allows the study of divergent courses. Trust me; it is one of the best university that offer admission without JAMB result in Nigeria.
Ighinedion University Okada:
Ighinedion University Okada was the first private universities to be established in Nigeria. Since it was established in 1999, Ighinedion University Okada has been contributing in the production of super intelligent youths. This should tell you that Ighinedion University Okada is not one of those private universities in Nigeria; not officially recognized. Her motto is “knowledge and excellence”.
Ighinedion University is a university for everyone. The university has seven faculties namely: College of law, College of health sciences, College of business and management studies, college of pharmacy, College of engineering and college of Arts and social sciences.

Not all courses are allowed in the university.
Note: The fact that the universities mentioned here do not require JAMB result for admission does not mean that they do not require other things like O’level result etc. In some cases, the school will ask you to take an examination (conducted by them) before they will offer you admission.
