The College of Nursing, University of Benin Teaching Hospital, formerly School of Nursing, University of Benin Teaching Hospital wishes to inform all intending applicants and the general public that admission into the College is now through the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME)

This is due to the recent upgrade of our Institution to National Diploma (ND) and Higher National Diploma (HND) awarding institution by the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), which entitles our graduands to be called up for National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).

All intending applicants should therefore endeavour to enroll in the ongoing UTME registration exercise to be eligible to apply for the Post UTME that will come up later in the year.



This to inform all candidates that, the UBTH School of Post Basic Midwifery Entrance Examination scheduled to hold on Saturday 26th  September 2020, has been postponed to Saturday 3rd October, 2020.

Meanwhile, the sales of form is still in progress till Friday 2nd October, 2020.
