Top 5 Big Courses In Nigeria That Are Prone To Unemployment by HighIQ(m): 12:59pm On Jun 16, 2017
Welcome, here are some big courses with a potential of rendering those who studied it into a state of regrets.They are big courses. There names sound good to the hearing. But are these big courses really what they claim to be?. Or are their other courses or profession competing with them.? Let take a look at them in MY top 5 listings below.

1) PETROLEUM ENGINEERING: This is a very big course to many. And a lot of people who study this course are potential workers at the oil refineries and oil companies. But after these places where can a petroleum engineer work? Absolute no where! Apart for the fact that these graduates compete with graduates of other engineering courses for the limited vacancies they are equally likely to be ignored since it is a restricted course. Chemical engineering which encompasses major chemistry of engineering including Petroleum engineering are great competitors of these people. It means if a petroleum engineer is unable to get a place in the oil industry or oil company. It may become virtually impossible to get any other job due to its nature of restriction.

2) MASS COMMUNICATION: This course also sound so good but apart from the fact they are only resticted to only the mass media, graduates of English language and other related fields are also strong competitors of these people.

3) BANKING AND FINANCE: This course also sound so beautiful and it can easily attract the.mind of Jamb candidates into studying it. But the fact is that the banking sector is a very open sector to virtually any graduates even the science students and yoruba graduates. So at this time, your been a graduate of Banking and finance won't matter at all. The worst is that you are likely not going to get any Job outside the Banking sector.

4) INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS: Everyone want to be an international man but does the course really profess the name it bears?

5) MEDICAL BIOCHEMISTRY: Even biochemists are highly respected not to talk of a whole Medical Bichemist. But the fact is Medical biochemistry is under Bichemistry and as a result a restricted course. So they are likely to depend only in the hospital for a job. But sadly, graduates of Medical laboratory science have taken over most of their hospitals and likely to be a great competitor or combater of these set of people.

Wait, shey if we no go school we no go succeed gan ni? What's with the wahala.. I remember back then in school, while i'm jejely going to my class i'd see all this otm students carrying boxes here and there.. It was only few months to the finish line that i know it is typewritter these people are carrying for four years.. Today i'm not surprised when i meet them and see they are still carrying boxes up and down, it has become a permanent disease and they are more like they are mad these days.. And funniest part is that thay are always in a hurry so there's no way they are gon tell you they are alright and you'd believe.. They are more like official mad people.. That's what school (education) has done.

Truth is, a lot of courses in Nigeria are useless, why? 80% end up working somewhere far off of what they studied


Even most of our lawyers are real broke, if you don't have a politician as a client, your name is real sorry not to talk about the hospital situations. Medical laboratory science has rendered biochemistry, microbiology and some others pretty much useless that they're are not even required anymore at the hospital

Building Technology. A very good course that is facing infiltration by Civil Engineers and Architects due to the unstandardised construction industry.

It's not the courses that are the problem, it's the lack of creation of jobs. Only very few industries are functioning, those who shout entrepreneurship are basically doing businesses ,such as importation, that rarely need the services of any professional skill. Fresh graduates, not just the ones listed by the OP alone, are churned out every year to face this stark reality.
