List of Private Universities in Nigeria and their School Fees

There are over 150 universities in Nigeria and more than half of them are private universities. Some years ago,  private universities were seen as inferior institutions, and federal/public universities were seen as superior. Today, private universities are the top choice as they do not follow the Nigerian academic calendar with ASUU strikes and unnecessary pauses in the school calendar.

Private universities in Nigeria are quite expensive, their tuition cost ten times as much as federal universities’ tuition. Though expensive, private universities offer a high standard of education, and graduates from private universities stand a higher chance of gaining immediate employment than most public university graduates.

Aside, from the quality of education offered in private universities, private universities are more concerned about one’s abilities to afford the high tuition rate. What this means is that the chances of a potential student gaining admission to study their course of choice are high in private universities. As earlier mentioned, private universities run smooth academic calendars and do not participate in ASUU strikes and any other strikes that public universities embark on.

Private universities are well-equipped with standard learning environments and facilities that enable students to carry out assignments, practicals, and experiments smoothly. The availability of these facilities aids students to learn and also enhances their academic performances.
