The University of Lagos has increased its tuition fee, from about N16,000 to over N100,000 depending on the course of study.
The development was made by the management, when the Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof. Folasade Ogunsola held a meeting with the representatives of non-teaching staff unions.
The new fees are at N190,250 for students studying medicine, while for courses that require laboratory and studio, they are to pay N140,250, and courses that do not require lab and studio are fixed at N100,750.
The management has given it’s students an option to pay in installments, but with a condition to pay up one month before final exams.
Following the increase in tuition fee at the University of Lagos, this development reminds us of the Student Loan Bill, which was signed into law last month, by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Applicant must provide at least two civil servants as guarantors, of not less than level 12 years in service.
