I found UNICAL-JUPEB an interesting one-year foundational programme at the University of Calabar. A friend of mine recommended the program to me after completing my secondary school in 2020.
My parents and I both had our doubts and reservations. One of them was whether I'd be admitted to the course of my choice or even admitted at all after completing the program; however, I had to take it as a last resort.
Starting the program was a little hectic because there were so many classes, practical, and various tests to get us prepared for the final examination ahead. Truly, it was an unforgettable experience. The management and lecturers made it really nice and easy for us all as they work tirelessly to ensure that we all succeed in the program. At the end of the programme, I came out successful and currently, I have been given admission into 200 level to study Dentistry as I initially wanted. All my doubts have been put to rest as I'm now a proud student of the University of Calabar. Thanks to God Almighty!
Hi! Mina Rosemary Ubana is my name. I am a graduate of Physiology. After completing my youth service in 2019, I decided to pursue my long-held childhood ambition of becoming a medical doctor. I had planned to apply with my BSc until a family friend told me about UNICAL-JUPEB at the University of Calabar and convinced me to go for it and I did. After completing a one-year foundation program at UNICAL-JUPEB, I was admitted to the University of Calabar to study medicine.
I chose UNICAL-JUPEB as a path and opportunity to study medicine because it not only provides an enriching learning experience but also allows me to improve on my educational skills. I am glad I came to UNICAL-JUPEB, and if you are thinking of going back for a second degree like I did, I highly recommend that you come to UNICAL-JUPEB.
Choosing to study at UNICAL-JUPEB was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. Before starting the programme at the University of Calabar, I really wasn’t quite sure of what to expect. As my majors were French, Literature, and Government, I noticed that the content guided and sharpened my communication skills after graduating from the program. The lecturers and management staff are incredible at what they do by engaging with students, creating a learning environment that makes the lessons understandable, and above all caring. JUPEB certification enabled me to gain direct entry into year two (2) at the University of Calabar, where I am currently studying Communication and Modern Languages.
