As known, all over the Country, Federal Universities are the most sought for and recommended Universities in Nigeria.
As it stands, any candidate seeking admission into any University in Nigeria, must include any Federal University as first choice, in his/her JAMB application form.
All Federal Universities in Nigeria are funded by the Federal Government of Nigeria, although they do have substantial income from diverse sources (like tuition fees, etc).
Check below for list of all the accredited Federal Universities in Nigeria.
The list contains Federal Universities in Nigeria, including Universities of Technology, Universities of Agriculture, and Universities of Education and their individual years of establishment.
It is our hope that this list serves as a guide for anyone seeking admission.
