Al-Hikmah University Logo

I’ve covered a series of posts on Top-Degree in Nigeria and abroad. I mentioned some other schools running the prograamme in my post, “Top-up Degree in Nigeria and Abroad: All About One Year Course to Convert HND to Bsc

The Top-Up (Degree and HND Conversion) Programme provides a platform where opportunities are made available for quality university education for the target beneficiaries.

The post, “HND vs Degree in Nigeria: 3 Ways Out for HND Holders” should interest you if you’re still doubting whether this programme is your best bet or not.

Background of Al-Hikmah University 

The University is a private-owned higher institution of learning situated at Adewole Estate, Adeta Road, Ilorin, Kwara State of Nigeria.

The curriculum of our Noble Institution is geared towards promoting academic excellence and also ensuring the moral and spiritual uprightness of our youths, most especially in the face of the imposing vicious challenges posed to humanity at large in the wake of the 21st Century.
