2023: FUOYE ranks 4th most-sought after varsity

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has named Federal University Oye Ekiti, Ekiti State, Nigeria as 4th most-sought after university in the country.

JAMB registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, while unveiling top 10 most-sought after universities in Nigeria, said FUOYE alongside University of Ilorin (UNILORIN), University of Lagos (UNILAG) and the Lagos State University (LASU) were the most-sought universities following an appraisal of its 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME).

Oloyede, who listed UNILORIN, UNILAG, LASU and FUOYE as first, second, third and fourth as Top4 most-sought after universities by admission seekers, said during the Board’s policy meeting in Abuja that the universities’ ratings followed attraction of high number of applicants during this year’s UTME application period.

FUOYE which had distinguished itself under the watch of its Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Abayomi Sunday Fasina by competing favourably with the first generation universities, had become attractive to admission seekers following it’s stable academic calendar.

In 2021, FUOYE was ranked 5th most-sought after university.

This, it retained until its latest ranking at the weekend by JAMB.

FUOYE has enjoyed relative peace since the tenure of Prof. Abayomi Sunday Fasina began.

This, has no doubt helped the fastest growing university to record a series of academic laurels including giant strides in sporting activities.

Besides, the Vice-Chancellor has improved on academic stable calendar through some innovative strategies to promote learning and conducive environment.

For instance, FUOYE’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof Fasina has ensured e-learning programmes for the institution’s teeming students without losing any academic session as conducted during the Federal Government’s forced elections’ holiday.

This was, however, proved effective with a view to ensuring VC’s adaptive approach to maintaining smooth running of academic programmes.

Meanwhile, the VC has attributed the FUOYE’s feat to hardworking team coupled with cooperation of members of staff, saying “our target is to become number one most-sought university in Nigeria and one of the best if not number one in the world.”

“Our determination is to launch FUOYE on global map and until it happens we would not rest on our oars,” he added.
