Best universities to study International relations
There are several top universities where you can study International Relations. A few of them include ABU Zaria, Covenant University, the University of Ibadan, etc.
There are several other top schools on our list. However, the most important thing to look out for is accreditation. That is, know if the university you wish to apply to have NUC accreditation to run a degree in it.
However, that is not something we can provide answers to since schools lose and gain accreditation on an annual basis.
What you should know
Gaining admission to study International Relations is not so competitive in Nigeria. It is one of the courses with the fewest number of applications every year. Bearing that in mind, a decent score in your JAMB UTME and Post UTME should be enough to secure your admission into the university.
You must also take note of the fact that the universities above have slightly varying requirements. To know those requirements read JAMB & WAEC Subject Combination For International Relations.
