5 reasons why you shouldn’t attend a private University – Only those in public schools can relate to #4

Why you shouldn’t attend a private University: If you look beyond the ASUU strikes in public universities, you’ll see several benefits these schools have over their private counterparts. In Nigeria, there is a general belief that private universities are far better than public varsities. This belief is strengthened by the epileptic ASUU strikes and internal crises in public higher institutions across the country. Usually, when a crisis does not get to the point of pausing the academic progression of the students and shutting the school gates, the crisis doesn’t get resolved.


These are parts of the reasons why some parents choose to send their wards to private universities. However, if you look beyond the ASUU strike in public universities, you will see several benefits these schools have over their private counterparts.

These benefits range from cheaper school fees to freedom to become an adult and exposure to the real world before becoming a graduate. The bulk of private university graduates don’t have such exposure and experience. So here are five reasons you should consider public university if you are seeking admission.

1. Cost of Education
The first thing people get to know about private universities is not the facilities they have but their school fees. Some private schools tuition fee is enough to build a house elsewhere. On the other hand, cost of education is very cheap.
Apart from this, cost of living in public university is also cheap as students are allowed to either patronise campus shops or those on the streets where prices are competitive. This is not allowed as some private universities will even punish students for having foodstuff in their hostel.
