Below is the tuition paid by students of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria between 2000 and 2005 (1999/2000 Session to 2004/2005 Session), and the newly approved fees.
The tuition was recently increased with attendant protests from students and eventual closure of the Varsity.
Between 2000 and 2005
100 Level: N1,050
200 Level: N500
300 Level: N500
400 Level: N500
500 Level: N500
Accommodation for all levels: N90
Tuition increment of 2004/2005 session led to disparity in tuition payment. Faculties/Courses determined amount payable. The minimum amount then was over N2,000. Same applied to accommodation. It was upped to around N2,000 (I can’t remember the exact amount).
