Private tertiary institutions in Nigeria and their fees

As students face slim chances of admission in the 2016 Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) examination, parents are looking forward to providing an alternative means of admission which is the private university.

Private universities are known to offer admission for candidates who are qualified enough without having to sit for any exam apart from the screening test that will be conducted by the school.

According to the National University Commission (NUC) website, there are above 50 registered private universities in Nigeria.
