Universities that offer Physiotherapy in Nigeria
“Sorry the university you chose doesn’t offer Physiotherapy” this response form a JAMB registrar is what could send a JAMB candidate into panic during registration as they are thrown off course and most of their plans are thwarted as they have chose a wrong university or one which does not offer Physiotherapy which is their preferred course.
Most candidates in this situation would end up changing their course or university wrongly which may ultimately reduce their chances of admission or set them on the path to studying the wrong course and choosing the wrong career.
This is why it is necessary to make enough research about your course, the institutions that offer it and their respective requirements such as cut-off marks.
