About us

Who we are

NUCIS stands for ‘Nigerian University and College Information Service’. 

Our services support young people making post-secondary school choices, as well as those applying for postgraduate studies by providing information, advice, and guidance to inform and encourage educational progression to university, college, or polytechnic.

The spark

Lack of a trustworthy and reliable platform where aspiring students could easily access higher education information so they may be better equipped to make more informed choices about their futures. 

One of the main challenges we face is the amount of outdated, and inaccurate information that can be found online about higher education in Nigeria. We have just begun the journey to becoming that reliable source of information, and the road is still long ahead but we hope that you will support us in tackling this great task.

“Student First Service”

NUCIS was created with the aim of helping students aspiring to higher education in Nigeria by providing them with a trustworthy one-stop-shop information database service that would be able to answer most of the questions they have on the road to admission. Students should be able to see a clear path to their future if we want to create a better tomorrow.

Every feature of this platform was born out of the intent to help answer questions students have had on the road to admission to higher education in Nigeria;

“What courses does this university offer?”

“What subjects are required to study X?”

“What university offers X?”

“Can I get into X course with my results?”

“What options do I have in Y state?”

…and many more.

Key features

Our platform has over 19,000 programs from over 900 institutions nationwide and is equipped with features to help our users maximize their search potential.

NUCIS has four strategic objectives:

  • Improve access to information and advice for Nigerian and international higher education candidates so they can make better informed choices.
  • Deliver trusted and reliable higher education information for the digital age. 
  • Be the go-to place for higher education data-driven insights.
  • Connect the world to Nigeria’s higher education. 

There are many routes to higher education. By showcasing the options and choices available to students we hope we can help make alternative options like colleges and polytechnics more attractive to prospective students.
