 Top 10 OAU Electives With No Field Trip (2024)


Special Elective is a two-unit course that doesn’t add to your CGPA but stresses the hell out of your life more than a 5 unit course.

In Obafemi Awolowo University, electives are courses that are different from your core courses because they don’t add to your CGPA even though each elective carries two(2) units. Electives are done in other to help students amass knowledge in other fields of study. Every OAU student must take a minimum of six (6) electives before graduating. Averagely more than 5% of OAU students always end up having an extra year because of special electives, I guess this is the reason why they are called “special” electives: they can ruin your career.

One peculiar fact about special electives in OAU is that you can not pick any elective from your faculty, you have to pick from Faculties that are not related to your field of study. This might seem difficult but it’s not so bad. Let’s not forget the fact that there are limited spaces for electives so you have to be fast with it to at least get the ‘simple’ ones.

The most amazing fact about special electives is that majority of the lecturers taking this course are proud and drive pleasure in stressing your life ;

The presence of a field trip is what sets an elective apart in terms of stress levels. While some individuals view field trips as a simple means of passing an elective without any added stress, others do not share this perspective.
