The courses of study which are those of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) subjects include English Language which is compulsory for all students. Students are required to choose three subjects in addition to English. The curriculum is structured into contact periods, mostly 2, each of around 18 weeks with hours per week for each subject. There is a break between contact periods and one or two weeks of examination at the end of each contact period
The requirements for admission into the Pre-degree programs are credits in Senior Secondary School Certificate/General Certificate of Education (SSCE/GCE), National Examination Council (NECO), Ordinary Level Examination (in not more than two sittings) in Chemistry, English Language, Mathematics, Biology, or Agricultural Science and Physics (for Science Students) and Economics and any two of Geography, Government, Commerce and Financial Account (for management Science students).

The Foundation Programs of the University of Lagos were initiated in 1998, with the objective of providing additional training opportunities to qualified youths of the Nation. This was in the overall educational interest of our growing young population in need of opportunities for further studies in Nigeria, the United Kingdom and elsewhere in the world. It contributes to the efforts of the government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in expanding access to tertiary education and quality products from the University System.
In the last sixteen years of its existence, the Foundation Programs (formerly Diploma II) have progressively provided avenues for successful candidates to gain direct admission into the 200 level of the degree programs of the University of Lagos, through the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), and into any of the approved tertiary institutions in Nigeria and our partnering Universities in the United Kingdom and China.
The vision is to provide additional training opportunities to the qualified youths thereby expanding access to tertiary education and quality products from the university system.
The University will provide an intensive one year taught foundation courses of study in the various Faculties in University of Lagos.
