News-What you should know before you Apply for HND Programme
Can I apply for HND without completing 1 year IT – details here
Higher national diploma popularly know as HND today is the highest certificate issued in Nigeria polytechnics and most students always seems to go for HND or direct entry after completing National diploma.
Here are few things you should know about HND.
1) Confirm the available Course: do you know that some courses accredited for national dioma never make it to the higher diploma level….that is some courses you study in ND will not be available in HND level in your school of choice.
There is need for you to know this and for you to be prepared when the time to apply for HND set in.
You can move to another school to study HND if your school does not offer the course you studied in ND Level.
2) 1 year compulsory IT
To apply for HND there is need for you to complete your 1 year IT and failure to do do will lead to termination of admission.
Your 1 IT must be completed before the school grant you admission.
These practice has been in existence for many years now and polytechnics frown at those who tries to manipulate the set policy.
3) After HND,What Next ?
Many are faced with the differnet opinion after their ijmb programme.
We have marriage plans….work plans…further education plan and business plans.
any of this plans can be executed after HND and there is need for you to prepare early and to determine what you want to do after your HND plan..
4) ,BSC vs HND Saga…. Our educational system might have lost it’s value in the present compare to how it was valued in the past.
It’s often stated that Bsc is greater or has a better value compare to HND.
The rate of unemployment does not favour any of this certificate holders now.
It’s quite sad looking at the number of years invested in obtaining a higher national diploma HND and BSC.
The good news is that the Nigeria of today encourage self capability and abilities and you are not limited to only the certificate you carry..
You can go higher and higher regardless of the certificate you carry and there is need for your to invest in yourself in order to outplay others competing in the same Rail with you….. News
