Something you may likely hate about the faculty of science, University of Yaoundé 1

The faculty of science may not be good for non French speaking students in the UY1,Cameroon

          The University of Yaoundé 1 is the mother of all Universities in Cameroon created after independence. It is a bilingual University with French and English as the languages of instruction. Today it has a student body of more than 40000 divided in more than 8 departments in more than 4 campuses in the country. The main campus is located in Yaounde the country's capital. Acceptance rates are very high in this state University. It offers undergraduate, graduate, and PhD levels.
The faculty of science is 99% not good for non French language proficient students because of the following reasons;


                                                                 Amphi 300
  1. Languages of instruction in this faculty is supposed to be 50% French and 50% English but about 99% of courses are offered in French. 
  2. 80% of the faculty professors and doctors are French speakers with poor English accent and a little mastery of the other aspects of the English Language.
  3. Class size is a mess. From thousands in undergraduate to hundreds in graduate classrooms.. Very uncomfortable.
  4. If you ever plan of applying for merit based graduate scholarship, do not go for undergraduate studies in this faculty. Here GPAs are very poor and 90 percent graduate with GPAs between 2.0-2.3 for undergraduates
  5. Hands on research is not highly encouraged in this faculty especially during your 3 years undergraduate studies but has improved for graduate students recently. Laboratories owes some refurbishment and equipments. If improvement can increase in the above mentioned phrases, this university in the next 5 years may top the African chat among the best Universities.

          Although there are hackles in this faculty, and in other faculties, these students after graduation can adapt to any education conditions both here in Cameroon and abroad. Note that their poor GPAs doesn't mean that they are not intelligent. This university is still a home to one of the best doctors and professors in Africa.

         It is ranked number 1 in Cameroon and at times appear among this best 50 in Africa. But my problem here is its I'll bilingual nature. Note that this University is meant to be bilingual but many faculties are not.
