Daily Part-Time (DPT) and Daily Part-Time Programme (DPP) are interchangeably used. When you hear DPT, it’s the same as DPP as indicated above. Some simply call it Daily PT or Daily PP.
In short, no difference between the two.
In case you don’t know, DPT or DPP is usually a two-year diploma programme at various polytechnics in Nigeria.
In order to gain admission for such a programme, you don’t need a JAMB UTME result. Some schools may, however, give preference to those who write UTME whether they passed it or not. Such schools (e.g Federal Polytechnic Ede) may just need evidence of your JAMB registration number. This is because the number will be needed in the future for NYSC mobilization. Hence, they ask their applicants to fill in their UTME registration number for reference.
These don’t mean that candidates who did not write UTME will not be given DPT or DPP admission, but you may be asked to do JAMB regularization later in order to have your own JAMB registration number for NYSC purpose.
Most schools today, resolve to give Daily Part-Time programme admission to candidates who were unlucky to be given ND full-time space or who failed their post-UTMEs e.g The Federal Polytechnic Ede Osun State, Oke Ogun Polytechnic Saki Oyo State, Ibarapa Polytechnic Eruwa Oyo State.
The obvious difference between this programme and the full-time is the higher fee. In most cases, tuition may be twice or higher of the full time. And candidates may like be scheduled for evening classes.
Meanwhile some polytechnics including the Federal Polytechnic Ede, Osun State Polytechnic Iree, Osun State College of Technology, Esa Oke, to mention a few, do sell the Daily Part-Time forms directly without the need to to use UTME registration during the applications. Hence, they don’t require UTME at all.
