Just so you know, unlike other programs offered by Universities in Nigeria, Pharmacy is quite different in the sense that these Universities upon graduation will not give you the same degree upon graduation.
Currently there are two degrees in Pharmacy at bachelor level, they are…
- Doctor of Pharmacy Degree (Pharm D)
- Bachelor of Pharmacy Degree (B Pharm)
The difference between these two is that, while one is more clinically oriented (Pharm D) the other (B Pharm) focuses more on Drug production and delivery.
In Nigeria currently Pharm D is the not the minimum to practice as a pharmacist, B Pharm is, and not all Universities in Nigeria offer Pharm D, only about five (5) of all the about 25 universities offering Pharmacy offers Pharm D.
This is a bit understandable because running Pharm D is expensive and not all schools are ready to add that cost to their list of expenses.
One disadvantage of applying to schools that offers Pharm D is the competition in those Universities, well we expected nothing less since only few Universities in Nigeria offers it.
Well, enough of the Chit Chat, below you will find the complete list of Universities that offers Pharmacy in Nigeria.

In order to qualify to study Pharmacy in these Universities you must meet the required JAMB and School departmental Cut off mark, and also have the correct JAMB and O’ level subject Combination having a minimum of credits in your core five (5) courses.
What JAMB Score Is Good To Study Pharmacy
The JAMB score you need to study pharmacy differs for different schools, which means, scoring 250 may be enough to study Pharmacy in DELSU but may not be good enough to study Pharmacy in UNIBEN, and not just that this score varies, it can also change.
So you may have the University of Benin pegging cut off mark for admission into Pharmacy at 260 and then 270 the other year, what actually determines this score is the general performance of student, so if student perform well then the score will be high but if student perform poorly then this mark will be low.
To be on a safer side, a JAMB score of 280 and above should do the trick for all universities and of course great performance in your O’ level for Universities conducting screening and scoring high in Post UTME for universities conducting Post UTME.
