The management of the University of Lagos on Friday, confirmed an increment in the tuition fees of its undergraduate students.

It explained that the hike has become necessary, because of the prevailing economic realities in Nigeria.

This was contained in a statement signed by UNILAG’s Public Relations Officer, Adejoke Alaga-Ibraheem.

Alaga-Ibraheem noted that the management has deliberated with its stakeholders (students, parents/guardians, staff unions, and alumni, among others), that there will be adjustments in the tuition fees for new and returning undergraduate students.

It partly read, “The adjustment in fees which will take effect from 1st Semester, 2023/2024 Academic Session, is in view of the prevailing economic realities and the need for the University to be able to meet its obligations to its students, staff, and municipal service providers among others.

“It is also pertinent to note that the University has not increased its obligatory fees in recent years.

“Management, therefore, seeks the kind understanding and support of students and other stakeholders with the assurance of its commitment towards ensuring that students get the best learning experience.”
