List of Universities in Nigeria List of Universities in Nigeria


[dropcap]This[/dropcap] is the full list of Universities in Nigeria, 40 Federal Universities in Nigeria, 44 State Universities in Nigeria and 68 private Universities in Nigeria as approved and released by the Nigeria Universities Commission (NUC), the list is the current and valid one for the year 2017. You can download the PDF here too. According to the National Universities Commission (NUC), Nigeria presently has 40 Federal Universities, 44 State Universities, and 68 Private Universities. Remember that the NUC is the Agency tasked by the Nigerian Federal Government to regulate and act as a catalyst for positive change and innovation for the delivery of quality university education in Nigeria. The NUC has always warned the general public from time to time to first verify if a university is approved before patronizing them. Some of our friends and loved ones have fallen prey to some elements parading themselves as approved universities especially foreign ones, only for people to later find out that they are not approved by the NUC.

We don’t want this to happen to you that is the reason we have gone to the NUC to obtain the full list of all approved Universities in Nigeria. As you will see from the list above below, Nigeria has a total of 40 different Federal Universities scattered across all the geo-political zones of the country; the country also has a total of 44 state Universities and 68 private universities.

  1. what about admiralty university of Nigeria ibusa delta state, it was accredited by nuc last month pls i need more info about the school, pls reply through my email

    1. Hello Ann, we cannot confirm if its true that the NUC has approved Admiralty University of Nigeria because the commission has not listed it as one of the Universities approved, they have also not replied to the request we sent to them, we’ll let you know when they reply.
      thanks
