Is it Good to Study in a Polytechnic?

Yes!!! Studying in a Polytechnic in Nigeria is as good as studying in a university. Meanwhile, graduates from the two may not be treated the same.

In some cases, graduates from a university may have an advantage over a graduate from a Polytechnic in terms of job search.

Meanwhile, a lot of employers have confidence in recruiting polytechnic graduates since they are believed to have more practical exposures than University’s graduates.

Finally, gaining admission and studying in a polytechnic is easier, faster and sometimes cheaper than studying in a University.

Now, the choice is left you to make. But make sure you make the right and always study in any institution you see yourself.
