N12m school fees: Late Herbert Wigwe’s university may become Nigeria’s most expensive varsity in August

Wigwe University is set to open its doors to the first set of students soon.

The university, founded by the late former Access Holdings Chief Executive Officer, Herbert Wigwe, is keen on providing a world-class education that equips students with the knowledge and skills to be future-ready.

Wigwe died in a helicopter crash alongside his wife Chizoba, and son Chizzy in California on February 9,  2024.

Located in Isiokpo, Rivers State, the university will offer a diverse range of programmes across four major colleges, including the College of Management and Social Sciences, the College of Art, the College of Science and Computing, and the College of Engineering.

Now, fees to study in any of these colleges do not come cheap.

It is said that the school when it opens officially, will be the most expensive university in the country.

A check on the school’s website shows that the cheapest college is Arts with a total fee of N9.6m.

Students taking courses in the College of Engineering,  College of Management and Social Sciences, and College of Science and Computing will pay a total fee of  ₦11,998,800 each.

The fees cover tuition, books, laboratory supplies and consumables, personal protective equipment, project lab resources, e-learning resources, health insurance, student membership in professional associations, student activities, and facilities maintenance.

There are also additional charges covering accommodation fees which include the luxury single bedroom apartment plan- ₦1,000,000 / per month; premium one en-suite bedroom plan – ₦3,845,000  per session; classic one plan – ₦3,707,000 / per session and classic two plan – ₦3,500,000 / per session.

The fees can be paid in two installments per session.

The management of the university, while defending its decision to charge in dollars, recently stated that home students would pay their fees in naira, while international students could select the dollar payment option

It said the decision was a strategic one that aligns with its vision to attract a diverse and international student body.
