List of DELSU Courses and Subject Combination Requirements

Delta State University, Abraka (DELSU) is one of the best state universities in Nigeria.

The university offers undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Medicine, Law, Arts, Social Sciences, Agriculture, Engineering, Management Sciences and Education.

Studying at DELSU requires meeting the Departmental cut-off mark for the course you are applying to study.

In addition, a correct JAMB and O’level (WAEC or NECO) subject combination is necessary to get admission to DELSU.

Taking a course with the wrong subject combination can ruin your admission chances.

There are categories of prospective students who get admission for a different course because of problems with their subject combination.

You must know the correct JAMB and WAEC or NECO subject combination for the course you want to study at DELSU.

This post concerns the DELSU courses list and JAMB, WAEC and NECO subject combinations.

Let me know in the comment if you have any questions or need further assistance.
