UNILAG Distance Learning Institute School Fees
Distance learning institute, popularly known a DLI, is a fast-growing method of education in Nigeria that doesn’t require student’s 100% physical presence in class or lecture rooms.

What this means is that students can complete their academic programmes successfully without being regular in front of lecturers. In most cases — just as it is with UNILAG, DLI is a five-year, weekend part-time programme that will grant you a BSc degree at the end of everything.

As much as we’re focusing on UNILAG Distance Learning, there is a need to discuss extensively about this method of learning in order to let you know all it entails.

* Programme’s Duration

Just as I have mentioned earlier, this method of learning often last for five years. Although, some courses require additional one year for completion which makes them six-year courses.

You’re only expected to attend lecture just twice in a month and it is only on Saturdays. However, you must be active during online lectures, and you must get all the needed online materials. It is advisable to stay in school during revision and exam weeks which will only last for one month.
