Complete List of Private Universities in Nigeria – I

Over the past one and half decade, the number of private universities in Nigeria has been on the rise. And just as the numbers increase, the number of candidates who apply to these universities also increases. Basically, the reasons for this is not farfetched. As private universities in Nigeria afford students the opportunity to plan their lives without having any fear of strike or delay in their academic journey. As opposed to federal universities, they guarantee students a fixed period of study and one can actually know one’s graduation date on the day of admission.
Furthermore, Private universities do not give candidates much problem as regard UTME or post UTME. Usually, prospective students just have to write the exam as a formality. As ability to pay school fees guarantee admission for most of these schools.
Considering all these advantages, I have deemed it fit to provide candidates the complete list of all private universities in Nigeria. As well as the tuition fees and portal address. This way, you can check for the ones that you can afford and access all information at their portal.
