Gender equity in students enrolment in the universities in Nigeria

Onokala, P.C.; Onwurah, C.U.

Abstract:
This report discusses the gender equity and patterns of student enrolment at universities in Nigeria.  The author discusses global massification at all levels of education.  He emphasises that the percentage of female students remains low, especially at higher education levels.  Amongst the conclusions drawn, is the fact that the highest percentage of female students enrolled in Arts-based faculties, while the Science-based faculties had registered the lowest percentage.  This scenario indicates that men dominate technical courses which lead to positions of power and higher income.  Most women are still in traditional professions that are considered to be the natural extension of their roles of wife and mother.  Since the majority of Vice Chancellors in Nigerian Universities are male, they overlook the gender issue.
