Even though university institutions produce high level manpower for the various sectors of the economy Nigeria had none until 1948. In its desire to increase the spread of university education, Ashby Commission recommended a dual mode delivery especially to accommodate the workers quest for upgrade of their qualification. Sandwich is the part-time programme designed for teachers and education workers. The study sought to analyse the gender demand for placement and actual supply of admission places in the sandwich programmes in South-South Nigeria. Eleven universities constituted the study universe made up of states and federal universities; some conventional, others specialized. Six of them were sampled for analysis. The study adopted the descriptive survey and covered eleven academic sessions. It was established that the demand for sandwich admission increased at an annual growth rate of 8.6%. Sampled universities placed an annual average of 26,787 candidates, made up of cumulative 56.7% females and 43.3% males. The increase in female demand for placement buttresses the desire to balance gender drive for national development. Suggestions were made for improvement.
