The study was a descriptive research of the survey type. The sample consisted of 351 males and 437 females from 3 institutions - The Federal Polytechnic, Ado Ekiti (232 males and females) National Open University, Ondo (72 males and females) and University of Ado Ekiti (484 males and females). A questionnaire solicited information from undergraduates on items on their levels of knowledge, opinion and attitude towards HIV/AIDS and educational training strategies of their institutions. Three (3) research questions and two (2) hypotheses were raised and tested. Results revealed that many of the undergraduates were aware of both the virus, HIV and the disease, AIDS. The Institutions put up inadequate strategies into teaching-learning towards awareness and reduction of HIV/AIDS. Health facilities, especially towards HIV/AIDS testing are very inadequate. The findings were discussed and recommendations given towards improvement in awareness, reduction of HIV/AIDS epidemic and educational training strategies in non – regular educational institutions in Nigeria. // Paper ID 751
