In this article, we bring you the List of the federal universities with the most expensive school fees in Nigeria, and how much students pay per course.
The most expensive federal universities in Nigeria and how much students pay per course/session. Federal universities used to be the cheapest institution to study in Nigeria but since the last tussle between the Federal Government led by Buhari in 2022 everything changed.
Federal universities are no longer cheap institutions to study in here in Nigeria and that’s due to the fact the federal government insists it can no longer fund the universities, universities will now have to find means to fund their selves.
Since then most federal government universities have reviewed their school fees to make sure students pay higher as a means to fund itself
Without further ado below is the list of most expensive federal universities. Kindly note that more universities are reviewing their school fees; we will keep working on updating this content.
