Due to gross incapacity of the existing public universities to meet the demand for university education in the country, the Nigerian government recently approved the establishment of private universities in the country. One common feature of most of these private universities is the absence of Education Faculties. The onus of meeting the ever increasing demand and need for education courses therefore rests on public universities. Since these universities have limited spaces for fulltime programmes, part-time programmes then become a necessity. The Sandwich Programme of the Faculty of Education, University of Lagos Nigeria was established to meet the ever increasing demand and need for teacher education in the country.The programme had faced many challengies such as inconsistent university calendar etc. This paper enumerates the process of coping with the challengies of a Sandwich Programme in a developing country.
