FULL LIST: NUC Releases List Of All Accredited Private Universities In Nigeria
  • PublishedNovember 27, 2023

Nigeria now has one hundred and forty-seven private universities, following the recent provisional licences given to 37 more between January 1, 2023, and June 27, 2023, by the National Universities Commission (NUC).

OSUN DEFENDER reports that the latest data was obtained from the official website of the NUC, the regulatory body for universities in the country.

The increased number of private tertiary institutions across the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory of the federation is said to have become necessary due to the quest for quality university education owing to industrial crises and issues of poor funding in the public tertiary education sub-sector.
