Private Universities School Fees In Nigeria 2024/2025 full list

As much as we don’t want to join millions of Nigerians in the argument of “which one is better between government or private universities,” it won’t be out of place to say that the private-owned universities are in a class of their own.

They arguably offer the best form of education to students when compared to the quality of lectures rendered by government schools.

Why You Should Choose a Private Over Government-owned Universities

  • Laudable Learning Facilities : In terms of learning facilities, the private-owned institutions arguably have upper hand over their government-owned counterparts. This is because the proprietor of every university is always ensuring that learning facilities are provided and replaced as at when due unlike the other category where government will delay the provision of learning equipments for a long period of time.
  • Uninterrupted Academic Calender : This is another reason why most parents prefer enrolling their children into private schools ahead of Federeal or state universities.

Private schools won’t be affected by ASUU strike or any national crisis, which helps them to stay glue to their academic calendar without any change or delay. This ensures that students have a speedy academic program during their stay at school.

In contrast to the private-owned tertiary institutions, federal and state universities in Nigeria are characterized by regular ASUU strike and other financial-imposed breaks. Thereby, leading to a slow-down in academic calendar and students academic schedule.

  • High Competition Amongst Students Which Leads To Higher Success Rate : It is believed that intense competition brings out the best out of every individual because he/she would do everything possible to come out first.

Competition forces every student to read and prepare well for all examinations in order to come up with impressive result. This phenomenon has played a key role in lowering the rate of failure in private schools, and many parents always want to see their children succeed.

Criteria Required To Gain Admission Into One Of The Country’s Private Universities

There is no special way to gaining admission into private university in the country. Just like every other university, you must have a qualified 0-level and UTME results.

Though your Post-utme result is equally important, many private universities currently don’t use it as one of the criteria for admission.
