According to him, after the take off of the listed five faculties this year, we are optimistic that before the completion of the 2024 academic calendar, the University would start its second phase programmes.

Before the end of September 2023, the first set of students will be admitted into the university of Ilesa, Ilesa.

We have the faculties of Arts, Social and Management Sciences, Law,the faculty of Basic Medical and Applied Sciences and Education. These are the five faculties we are starting on phase one. Hopefully before the year runs out when we are more stabilized then the phase two programme will be mounted.
