Abstract: This study focused on fostering life skills of Nigerian University undergraduates, using Creativity and Entrepreneurship trainings towards remediation of graduate unemployment. A pretest-posttest control group quasi experimental design using a 3x3 factorial matrix was adopted. The experimental (Creativity and Entrepreneurship training groups) and the Control formed the rows while levels of study (200,300,400) formed the columns. A total of 180 university undergraduates were randomly selected on the basis of natural cluster, availability and convenience, from 3 randomly selected Federal Universities. Sixty (60) students were randomly selected from each University with 20 from each of 200, 300 and 400 levels. They were randomly assigned to the 2 experimental and control groups. Olawale's (2006) Life Skills Assessment Scale (LSAS) was administered on the participants both at the pre and post-test situations. The result revealed that the experimental group performed significantly better than the control on Life skills assessment ratings. It was therefore recommended that creativity and entrepreneurship trainings should be properly integrated into Nigerian undergraduates' curriculum and made compulsory so as to proactively reduce the menace of graduate unemployment in Nigeria
