List Of Private Universities In Nigeria -NUC 2019

Schoolworld has the current list of the Private Universities In Nigeria. Education is a booming business in Nigeria and those who chose to invest in it are caching in big; one of the main reasons people are investing seriously in education in the country is that the business has shown that it can continue to thrive despite so many challenges killing businesses in Nigeria.

One of the areas of education people are seriously investing in is the establishment of private universities and since the beginning of 2019, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NUC) has registered 4 more private universities, they are: Greenfield University of Kaduna, Dominion University of Ibadan, Trinity University of Ogun State and Westland University of Osun State; with this new entrants Nigeria now has a total of 79 Private Universities.

The list we have here is current and released by the Nigerian Universities Commission as the list of duly registered private universities in Nigeria, NUC is the sole body in Nigeria tasked with ‘granting approval for all academic programmes run in Nigerian universities’, ‘granting approval for the establishment of all higher educational institutions offering degree programmes in Nigerian universities’ the body is also expected to ‘ensure quality assurance of all academic programmes offered in Nigerian universities’ as well as serving as a ‘channel for all external support to the Nigerian universities’. Because of this, only Universities listed by the NUC can be said to be authentic, if a university is running in Nigeria without being listed as being approved, then, the University is a fake.

We have had several instances of Universities admitting students for study and the students paying huge sums of monies without realizing that the Universities are not approved; for one not to be a victim of this fake institutions, one has to know all the approved Universities. This list bellow is the one displayed on the official website of the Nigerian Universities Commission (NUC) on the 26th of July 2019, the list contains the names of the institutions, the pioneer VC, the Institutions website and the year established. See the list bellow:
