This article brings you the latest List of universities with the cheapest school fees in Nigeria in 2023.
You’ll have to note that there’s been an increase in tuition fees in most public universities in Nigeria.
The hike in school fees is due to the disagreement between ASUU(Academic Staff Union of universities) and the Federal government on university funding
The federal government isn’t ready to increase the funding but rather asking the universities to increase IGR.
If the universities must keep running and FG is not willing to fund them, the fees will be increased by the councils as we are seeing now to fund the universities.
It is generally tough now and the impact of fee increases will be huge on the parents.
Some Students will have to pay between 100k -300k in government-run universities, we know not everybody can afford the fee hence we bring you the List of schools with the cheapest tuition fees.
Kindly note school fees might vary with the course, it isn’t the same for all courses, and in other institutions, it decreases as you move to another level.
