The number of private universities In Nigeria has increased tremendously within the last decade. This increase has brought about a stiff competition in the quality of education available in the country presently, as this has engineered us into writing about the List of Private Universities in Nigeria and their school fees for 2023/2024 academic session.
The information contained here would help a great deal in helping both parents and guardians in knowing the exact school fees for their wards.
One notable feature with private universities in Nigeria is that payment of tuition fee is a requirement for admission. That is, upon gaining admission, your school fees payment receipt would be needed, that is, a proof of payment of tuition fee by fresh students will be required before you are granted admission unlike public (State and Federal) universities where fees can be paid after gaining admission.
While the public universities still maintain a great standard of learning, private universities In Nigeria boast of a smooth calendar that isn’t hindered by strike action as very well noticed in the public schools.

In fact some schools give students the opportunity to break down fees in three (3) installments and some schools allow up to four installment payments.
