    Yes, there’s a great difference between a doctorate degree (Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) or DPhil) and the undergraduate programs where students earn the (Dr. title). Most undergraduate veterinary medicine students and pharmacy students earn the title Dr. after intense clinical work coupled with some extra courses which normally takes about 6years to complete. For a person to earn a PhD/DPhil, a student is required to complete a one year or two years masters work before they embark the intense 3 or 4 year graduate work to get PhD which is purely research based. This takes between 8-11years to complete from (BSc to PhD). At the end of the PhD it is highly recommended that the candidates comes up with an original thesis which will add new knowledge to the particular field of study.

Most of the friends I made in the university desire to further their education after first degree, some who have completed are working to obtain admissions in universities abroad. However, quite a number of them are preparing to write graduate exams like GRE or GMAT as part of their preparations. So I really want to know how important these exams are for students who would like to do further studies.

    This is the deal….system of education abroad is different from Africa. For them they think there should be some form standard in their schools. So for instance in the US they use the GRE even for their citizens for some programs….as an international student to be of the same standard as them on which they ll depend on to admit, then you have to write the GRE. I hope i have answered your question. If not follow up. I would be glad to give it another shot. Thanks man

    For accommodation in the university, it may depend on several factors.
    Primarily, whether the hostel/hall is owned by the school or private owned.

    Most of the ones owned by the schools do not have flexible plans and is likely to be the same kind for every student. For instance, the university halls usually take 4 students in a room. Each room may have just 2 bunked beds shared by 2 pairs in the room. Unfortunately, these rooms may not be very spacious for the comfort of the 4 students.

    However, those private hostels or even hostels on campus aside the traditional halls may have a flexible plan. One can decide on the number of people they would want to go into a room with. The very common ones available are;
    a. One in a room
    b. Two in a room
    c. Three in a room
    d. Four in a room

    You have to note that the fewer the number of people in the room, the higher the value you will pay for it.

    The last option is what we refer to as homestels. This is where someone else having a house around campus decides to hire some out to students. Some are very flexible such that, they let you decide how many people you would want to come into the room with. The amount of money they are going to charge you is usually fixed irrespective of the number of people you stay with.

    Basically, what this type of accommodation arrangement in any tertiary institution means is that, a student is allowed or offered accommodation on campus for their first year (not free but the school is responsible for providing it). That is what is referred to as “IN”.
    The subsequent years’ (second, third and fourth) accommodation will not be a burden of the school in terms of provision. The individual will have to go in search of their own form of accommodation and mostly these happen to be outside the school’s campus. So, the second, third and fourth year accommodation respectively becomes ” OUT”, “OUT” and “OUT”.

    No please. Doctor of pharmacy is still an undergraduate degree for people who want to become pharmacist. This is just an upgraded form of the previous Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy popularly called B. Pharm

    The major difference is that the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm D.) is more clinically oriented. So, the undergrads studying this course focus more on the practice of pharmacy in the hospital. It is a more in depth training and takes 6years to complete unlike the former which was a 4-years long programme.

    A masters degree in pharmacy on the other hand is a postgraduate course which only people with an undergraduate degree in pharmacy (B. Pharm and Pharm D.)
