Ph.D program in Virology at the University of Ibadan, Oyo state, Nigeria.

The doctoral program in virology at the University of Ibadan takes a lot of time from a Nigerian perspective. It is operated on both full-time and part-time basis, depending on a candidate’s M.Sc grades or background, the candidate may be eligible for an M.phil PhD or direct P.hD.

The doctoral program in Virology at the Department of Virology, University of Ibadan is self-funded.

M.phil PhD: The candidates would have to take coursework in virology, a partially completed project work ( from approved project proposal), and finally if project work is approved or sufficient, a seminar/oral exam is scheduled for conversion into a PhD program. The candidate must pass his/her exams to be eligible for conversion into a PhD program.

Direct P.hD: The candidate would have to present a proposal which has to be approved by his/her P.hD supervisor, this usually involves field and laboratory works. At the completion of one’s work and if satisfactorily approved by the department, this can proceed to seminar and oral presentation stages.

Duration: There is presently no agreed number of sessions for a PhD program in Virology, you may see a different reality than expected when you are enrolled into the program, but the review of the program’s satisfaction by alumni of the Department is not impressive. My best advice would be for a prospective candidate to hear from past graduates of the department before launching into the programme at the University of Ibadan.
