Access to basic education is considered as a fundamental human right and foundation of national development. Nigeria population is over 180 million. The school-age children and the students seeking admission to tertiary institutions in the country are also large relative to the population of Nigeria. More than one million prospective tertiary institution students are unable to get admission to tertiary institutions every year, despite the presence of over two hundred educational institutions meant for that purpose. Thus, adult and non-formal education is the alternative structure that is absorbing large number of students who are unable to get admitted to formal education system. Therefore, the study entitled: Mass Media and Broadcast Media: Spreading Messages of Components of Adult and Non-Formal Education among the populace in Nigeria is embarked upon. The aim of this study is to find out the extent to which mass and broadcast media is used to spread the components of adult and non-formal education among tertiary institution students and the impact on their academic achievements. The study will employ research design of the survey type. Sample will be obtained from the selected Universities, National Open University of Nigeria and Industrial development Centres. Data will be analysed using descriptive statistics to answer research questions; and inferential statistics to test hypotheses. All the results will be decided at point 05 level of confidence. Recommendations will be made based on the findings of the study.
