Best universities to study Archaeology?

All the universities on our list are top universities. Therefore, it is really tough to pick one from among them.

What you should know

Archaeology is an academic discipline that involves the study of human activity through the recovery and analysis of material culture.

Gaining admission to study Archaeology is not competitive in Nigeria. Therefore, satisfying the cut off mark in JAMB UTME and Post UTME should be enough to secure your admission into the university.

You must also take note of the fact that the universities above have slightly varying requirements. To know those requirements read JAMB & WAEC Subject Combination For Archaeology.
