About Programme



Arising from the vision of making the Federal University of Petroleum Resources, Effurun, Delta State a top-rate University with the ability to attract the brightest students, the University commenced its Basic Studies (Pre-Degree) programme in August, 2015 for prospective candidates for science and engineering disciplines.  The aim of the programme is to:

1. Improve prospective students' performance in the WASC/NECO/GCE and equivalent examinations in order to enhance and to meet the admission requirements in Science and Engineering programmes.
2. Prepare candidates adequately for UTME examination in order to enhance their admission chances to these programmes.
3. Improve the quality of candidates seeking admission to 100 level of FUPRE programmes and of other Universities.

PROGRAMME DESCRIPTION

The programme is an intensive nine (9) months teaching and coaching lessons in the following areas:

  • English Language
  • Mathematics
  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Biology
  • Geography


1.) Admission to FUPRE 100 Level disciplines will be based on the average of final Basic Studies Examination and Jamb Scores.

2.) Candidates awaiting their WAEC or NECO results can also apply.

INSTRUCTION

Candidate must possess a minimum of 5 credit passes including English Languages and Mathematics in not more than two (2) examination Sittings.


The programme leads to the award of Joint Universities Preliminary Examination Board (JUPEB) Certificate which shall enable candidates to gain Direct Entry admission into 200 level of the disciplines offered by FUPRE and other Universities in Nigeria and abroad.  The Joint Universities Preliminary Examination Board (JUPEB) certificate is equivalent to the Advance Level General Certificate of Education (GCE), Higher School Certificate (HSC) or Interim Joint Matriculation Board (IJMB).  Candidates who successfully complete the programme shall also enjoy the privilege of being admitted into JUPEB affiliated institutions such as UNIBEN, OAU, UNILAG, UNN, UNIUYO, FUTA, FUNAAB, etc.

Each candidate admitted into the programme will be exposed to an intensive academic work in three subject combinations relevant to their desired field of study.  The subjects are in consonance with the 100 Level courses of the relevant discipline currently offered in FUPRE.  Thus, candidates will offer six (6) courses per semester, making a total of twelve courses at the end of the programme.  Each course will be examined at the end of each semester but the results in all the courses taken will be merged at the end of the second semester to obtain a letter grade in each subject (i.e. A, B, C, D, E, & F).  

Candidates who successfully complete the programme shall enjoy the priviledge of being admitted into the following Colleges:

(A) TECHNOLOGY
(i) Petroleum Engineering
(ii) Gas Engineering
