Most lucrative courses in Nigeria



This might sound absurd, but it is just the truth. Agriculture is one of the easiest courses in Nigeria. It is also one of the most lucrative in Nigeria too. According to Wikipedia, Agriculture is the science and art of cultivating plants and livestock.  In Nigeria Agriculture seems to be the more lucrative because, the country is actually poor in the production of food for consumption.

This is apparently why many reasonable people in Nigeria, go to the extent to getting loan to start up their own farm. Franking speaking, many students relegate Agriculture as a course in the university, but what they do not know is that Agriculture will always remain the best and most lucrative course in Nigeria. If you want to study one of the easiest courses in Nigeria, Agriculture is one of them. Trust me; you will love this course.


Guiding and counseling:

Guiding and counseling is probably the easiest course in Nigerian universities. It is a new course that was introduced into Nigerian tertiary institutions around 2010. This is obviously why some universities have not recognized the course yet. That notwithstanding, I must let you know that Guiding and counseling is a good and easy course to study. If you are really looking for an easy course to study, then this is the ideal course for you.

However, since not all the universities in Nigeria have accepted the course, I enjoin you to make sure that the course is recognized in the school you want to attend before you apply for it. Trust me; you will love this course. It is one of the easiest courses in Nigerian universities.


Geography is another easy course you can study in Nigeria. This has rightly been confirmed my many students. Geography is a field of science devoted to the study of the lands, features, inhabitants and phenomena of the Earth and planets. Research has also proven that Geography is one of the less competitive courses in Nigeria.

One striking thing about studying Geography is the high employment opportunity available to graduates of the course. For instance, a graduate of Geography can work in any of the top weather forecasting companies in Nigeria. Sometimes, a graduate of Geography can be called upon to examine the topography of a land before building will commence. Trust me; this course is a good idea for students who want to study in an easy course in Nigeria.

Political science:

Political science is undoubtedly one of the easiest courses anyone can study in Nigeria. It has to do with the study of political theories with the sole aim of discovering a good or bad government. It will surprise you to know that political science is not just an easy course in Nigeria. It is also one of the most lucrative courses in Nigeria too.

Being actively part of Nigeria’s politics is one of the ways to become rich in Nigeria. This is apparently because; politicians in Nigeria are paid heavily for their Job in the country. No doubt, political science is another ideal course for students who are searching for an easy and high paying to study in the country.

Due to some factors I had to add History to my list of easy courses in Nigeria. Though, I can’t actually say that the course is as other courses mention above. History is a good and less competitive course in Nigeria. Historians in Nigeria are people who study the history of Nigeria. They tend to find out how Nigeria was formed, the culture and way of life of the people who formed Nigeria, how they were colonized by the whites and many more.

Aside being easy, History is a fascinating course. It is one of the courses students in the university love so much. This is because the course tries to disclose how the forefathers of Nigeria lived. If you are really searching for an easy and less competitive course to attend in Nigeria, History is a good idea.


I will forgive you if you say you have not heard about this course before because, Zoology is one of the unpopular and easy courses in Nigeria. Now you may be asking, who is a Zoologist? What is the course all about? Well, the answers to these questions are simple. First, Zoology is a part of biology which relates to animal kingdom, including the structure, embryology, evolution, classification, habits and distribution of all animals, both living and extinct.

From the above definition, a Zoologist is a person that studies Zoology. Many people think that Zoology has to do with taking care of animals in the zoo, but this is a fallacy. Zoology is a good and easy course for every student. You can give it a try.

Radiography is another unpopular course in Nigeria. I was so surprise when I heard someone referring to a Radiographer as a person who makes or repairs radios. It was quite funny but also outrageous. Radiography has nothing to do with making radio. It is actually the process of making radiographs and the science of studying them. Yes! Radiography may be very unpopular in Nigeria, but it is still one of the amazing courses in Nigeria.

I may not tell you what this course is all about in details, but I can assure you that it is one of the most lucrative and fascinating courses in Nigeria. Trust me; you will never regret studying this course at all.

Veterinary medicine:

Veterinary science is a branch of medicine that deals with the causes, diagnosis and treatment of the diseases of animals. Franking speaking, Veterinary science is not very lucrative in Nigeria as at the time this article was written. However, it is one of the most respected courses in Nigeria because; it is under the field of medicine.

If you intend to study Veterinary science, i advise you to first, verify whether the course is allowed in the university you want to attend before you apply for it. The reason for this is because, not every university in Nigeria allows the study of Veterinary science. Trust me; it is one of the easiest courses to study in Nigeria.

Microbiology is one of the best and easy courses in Nigeria too. It has to do with the branch of biology that deals with microorganisms, especially their effects on man and other living organism. It will surprise you to know that Microbiology is also one of the highly paying courses in Nigeria. A Microbiologist can work in any drugs producing company in Nigeria. He can also earn from making researches and making his research work known to the general public.

No doubt, Microbiology is a good choice for science students who are looking for an easy course to study in Nigerian universities. The truth is that, you will not regret studying this course after graduating from the university (If you know what you are doing).

Environmental science:

If you truly want to study an easy course in Nigeria, Environmental science is a perfect course for you to study. Environmental science has to do with man’s environment and how it affects him. Over the years, Environmental science has been one of the most fascinating courses in Nigeria, as it tends to know how man relates with his environment, the various ways of adaptation and how man is able to harness the resources in his environment for his own good.

I personally recommend this course for students who want to study any social science course in the university. Environmental science is one of the best you can study.

Evidently, these are the easiest courses to study in Nigerian universities today. Just as I noted at the inception of this article, “No course is actually easy, but when compared with other courses, some are easier than others”. Hope this article was useful?
