145 List of Universities in Nigeria

As the most populated country in Africa, Nigeria is home to over 145 universities and several polytechnics, Monotechnic and Colleges of Education. On this post, I will only focus on universities in Nigeria.  If you wish to study in Nigeria, you have the options to choose from any universities in want.

On this post, I am going to list out all the universities in Nigeria approved by NUC. There are many universities in Nigeria mostly private that are not approved in Nigeria, so you won’t get to see them on this list. If you are overwhelmed by this list, you can consider the best university in Nigeria and make your decision from there.

On this post, you will see all federal government-owned universities. These are universities in Nigeria that can be controlled by the federal government of Nigeria while state universities are controlled by the state government, but they are both under the supervision of NUC. There are some states in Nigeria where both federal and state and private universities can be located.

Private universities are universities in Nigeria owned and controlled by individuals, corporate bodies and religious bodies but under the supervision of NUC. Moreover, admission into these universities (federal, state and private) in Nigeria are govern by JAMB. Other required documents for admission into any of these universities in Nigeria are issued by WAEC or NECO.
