Top 17 Most Expensive Polytechnics in Nigeria

Expensive schools are polytechnics that require a lot of money for school fees, registration, and other expenses. Gone are those days when education was free, but now you have to pay to get education, especially now that Nigeria’s population is growing larger every day. 

In our previous article, we highlighted some polytechnics in Nigeria that are cheap and affordable; check it out here.

According to our research, expensive schools are polytechnics whose school fees are exorbitant for students. Some of the students in these schools do complain about their registration fees and other dues imposed on them.

Well, this article is not to scare any student, but just to make them aware of the bills ahead of them at their desired school. Generally, almost all schools have increased their school fees, but there are some that are quietly expensive.

Below are the lists of the 17 most expensive polytechnics in Nigeria.

1. All private polytechnics.

Many students have dropped out of school because they couldn’t afford to pay their school fees after they were offered admission to the polytechnic. Private polytechnics are cheap when it comes to admission but expensive when it comes to school fees and other bills. Minimum school fees for private polytechnics range from 100k and above, excluding acceptance fees, departmental dues, and textbooks. If you don’t have a good source of income, don’t even go near a private school so you won’t drop out.
