Thank you all for this trend!
I want to admit that I have a cousin who has been a victim of this HND issue. But in order for him to get past it, he decided to enrol for PGD and currently doing his MSc.
Although, he has earlier enquired from some universities that he will be eligible for PHD after his MSc.
Now my question,
1)is it advisable to still run BSc or just continue with the MSc since he will be allowed to run PHD?
2)if he then goes to run BSc after his MSc, won't there be issues about the order of his certificates (HND, PGD, MSc, BSc, instead of HND, BSC, MSC)?

Thanks for quality responses!


after is MSC, he can apply to any university for BSc or a BSc top-up(some universities in Nigeria have it now, many universities in the UK offers it)...

The truth is that even with your Ph.D. thru an HND, you cant lecture a university student in most schools in Nigeria...

It depends on your course of study.
If you're studying Bus admin, accountancy, & applied sciences, then you should try to graduate from HND with an upper credit. Unilag's Distance learning institute will grant you admission to start from 300 level.
All you need is to buy the form and seat for an entrance exam . Though it is a part time program, you will get same Bsc certificate as other Unilag graduates.
God bless u for this. People need to know

Lemme Share my experience here, I am a ND holder . i went for my 1 yrs IT in view of going for hnd after my IT. i was paid 10000 per month in a poultry farm, there were also student frm uni doin there IT there, they were paid 20000 every month and they cnt do anything they are very lazy common placing of birds drinkers and feeders they cant but they were collecting more than me. WHY? because they are uni student. i cant blame people who are critising hnd degree looking at the caliber of lecturers who took me when i was in school all of them expect my hod were bsc holder or hnd holder campare to uni lecturer. there is nothing like practical in poly the only practical experience i have was when i went for my 4 mnts siwes. but to God be the glory i did DE to UI this year and i ve being offered admission.

I really need your advice. I'm also about to do DE, I graduated from Poly Ib with Distinction in Mechanical Engineering please help me out!!!

If you have a credit pass in further maths and it's at one sitting, just choose further maths.

Is it because HND didn't work for you in the past now you are hellbent in trying to disuade others from pusuing their dreams in the polytechnic,that is wicked and unethical on your part.
So many people have been deceived by the falsehood you post up there,these life sha.
NOTE:A fool will believe anything but wiser people watch their step.

Lol He say unethical... I laugh for you in dichotomy.

The truth is there is no dream at all in the polytechnic. The ones you take there are killed if not carefully protected. I have about 5 relatives who have obtained HND with a minimum of upper credit division. They all advised I dare never to return for HND, else, I'd simply be limited and opportunities would pass me by.

One works in a local government but can't rise above certain cadre. He's quite unhappy about it. Another had connections but she was told the required qualification is a degree. Another got a slot to work with Ogun State civil service but HND holders were never invited for the interview. Someone else filled the slot.

Sir, be ye not deceived, and don't bother consoling yourself. HND is simply evil, I've seen those who are still facing hell for having it. Avoid it like a plague and be happy with yourself. Having HND isn't condemnable but getting your B.sc is best.

The true is that, who God want to bless, no matter what qualification you're carrying, He will still bless you.

Please I have a question.
If one successfully top up his HND to BSc with a recognized school in Nigeria, how possible can you proceed to master abroad ? The reason for my question is this, I read in one school in Canada that for you to be considered for masters, you must have BSc with study period of not less than 3yrs.

My fear is that, if you top up in 2yrs, won't this be reflected in your result and thereby falling short of the above threshold?

Please a well informed individual should clear me on this.
