List of Courses offered in the NTI PGDE programme

The National Teachers’ Institute is one of Nigeria’s teacher-training institutions. It offers courses leading to the award of certificates, degrees and diplomas in education. Here, we focus on the Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE).

Requirements for the PGDE

The PDGE is meant for candidates who possess any of the following qualifications and are interested or involved in teaching and/or school administration at any level. These people are eligible for admission:

  • Higher National Diploma (HND) holders from a recognized institution and in relevant areas.
  • Bachelor’s Degree holders in other fields than education (BA, B Sc., B. Tech.)
  • Bachelor’s Degree in Education holders with a Third Class
  • Master’s Degree and PhD holders in other fields than education.

At the institution, students who satisfactorily complete the programmes are awarded their respective diplomas making them able to proceed for their Master’s and PhD degrees. In this list, EduCeleb.com identifies the courses offered to PGDE students at the NTI.

  6. Please, I want to apply for the PGD program. I’m an HND holder based in Kaduna. I really want to know how relevant is the PGDE in Nigeria and when is it closing for this year.

    1. English is generally compulsory in Nigeria. Such a low grade in English reduces your chances of being accepted. If, perhaps, you have plans to write the SSCE for Private Candidates (Nov/Dec), you may try it out.

    2. thanks real good for your prompt answer.
      I have been taking with the D7 in English, but my fear is, will it frustrate me when I would finish the program to collect my certificate? I will definitely write it but I didn’t intend to write it soon. What can you advise me on that sir?

  7. Is pgde certificate offered by NTI acceptable to study masters in public health?
    pls i need an urgent reply,
    thanks.

    1. I’m not sure if those are related anyway. Public Health should be a course in the College of Medicine. But PGDE is for those interested in education or teaching at any level of education.

  8. Please when do the First semester start and what is the duration of the PGDE programme.I want to apply

  9. Good day sir,pls, when will admission letter be ready? Some people have submitted their forms but the admission letter is yet to be released.

  10. Can I still pick a form now or do I have to wait till Oct-Nov. Again I had B Sc. In plant science which course should I take.

  11. GOOD MORNING, PLEASE I AM A GRADUATE OF COMPUTER ENGINEERING AND I WANT TO PURCHASE PGDE FORM. PLEASE IS THERE ANY SPECIFIC COURSE FOR ENGINEERING STUDENTS.
    PLEASE IS URGENT

  12. Please am at Kaduna, i want to enroll for PGDE where is the nearest centre to me ? i stay at barnawa kaduna south
    do i need an nysc certificate to apply for PGDE?
    when will the form be on sale ?

    1. 1 The NTI Headquarters is in Kaduna, along the Kaduna-Zaria Road. Visit there.

      2 NYSC certificate is necessary but if you are currently doing your NYSC, the centre manager may accept you using your evidence being a corper. At the end of the day, you would need to produce the NYSC certificate in order to get your NTI certificate.

      3 The sale of forms would close soon.
