Babcock University Students To Pay N1.5m-N3m School Fees

babcockA new school fee regime is now effectively in place at the Seventh Day Adventist Church owned Babcock University located at Illishan  Remo,  Ogun State.

Following a review of the school’s tuition fee which many considered very high, returning students of the institution would now have to pay between, N1.5m to N3m.

The Heat Nigeria findings revealed that the  Law students who were hitherto paying N870,000 (with two meals a day), will now have to pay N1.5m while medical students who were paying N2m per session, now have to pay N3m.

Payment by students in other departments also falls within the same range.

With the latest increase, Babcock presently ranks as one of Nigeria’s highest paying private universities.

The school authority cited  harsh economic realities, as part of the reasons for the new fee regime.

Some parents whose wards attend the school have however been protesting the hike saying it is rather too outrageous.

Many claimed that they were not carried along by the University management before the new fee was fixed.

Reacting to the allegation however, the University Director of Marketing and Communications, Mr. Joshua Sulaiman, told The Punch Newspaper on Wednesday that the decision to review tuition was done with input from representatives of the university’s students and parents.

He added that authorities at the institution were left with no option but to increase the tuition following the harsh operating environment in the country.

An executives of the Parents Consultative Forum and the Association of the Babcock Student Union, however dissociated themselves from the outcome of the meeting.
