Private Universities in Nigeria

Nigeria has a wide variety of private universities that provide higher education for students in the country. Private universities are now the most comfortable and fast studying destination for Nigerian students to study. It is due to the underfunding and poor funding of State and Federal schools in Nigeria.

Attending a private university in Nigeria is the best alternative to studying abroad. You would not get caught up in the menace that takes place in Public Universities. The infamous ASUU strike is nonexistent in Private schools.

Both public universities and private institutions are subject to the same oversight, regulation and accreditation, which means you will be getting the same quality education regardless of whether you opt for a federal-funded university or a state-funded university or a private institution.
