The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has unveiled 10 fresh requirements for the admission of foreign students to Nigerian universities.
According to the examination board, the new requirements supersede the earlier requirements released by the board in November 2019.
The new requirements were contained in a memo signed by the Director, information technology services of JAMB, Fabian Okoro and dated October 10, 2023.
The memo reads, “The University sends a list of all fresh foreign candidates (for current admission) to State JAMB Office with a letter of indemnity signed by the Head of the institution.

“The letter of indemnity will read in part, “I confirm that the listed candidate as forwarded to JAMB all met the admission requirements into my institution and hereby indemnify JAMB against any inaccuracy of the claims”.
“The same list and letter as in (1) above should be sent to the JAMB Director of Admissions through the CAPS mail. The institution directs candidates to State JAMB Office to create their profiles individually on facility platform (Note that only the State JAMB Office that the institution is located can attend to the candidates).
“At State JAMB Office, the candidate fills FRESH FOREIGN Application form online which would be available only at the State JAMB Office (Candidate not on the list earlier sent by the institution would be rejected by the State JAMB Office and cannot process any application on the system).
“Immediately the registration is completed at the JAMB Office, a Registration Number would be generated and assigned to the candidate alongside his/her transaction 10.
“Each candidate is expected to print and submit the auto-generated Indemnity Form after completing the application to his/her institution for the signature of the Head of the Institution to again indemnify JAMB on the accuracy of the information provided by the candidate.
“The Head of the Institution authorises the candidate’s application online. At this point, the details of the candidate are now made available on CaPS to enable the institution ropose and Recommend the candidate to JAMB for approval.”
