Wigwe University is poised to become Nigeria’s most expensive institution of higher education, redefining the standards of educational costs while ensuring top-tier academic excellence and state-of-the-art facilities.

Established by the late former CEO of Access Holdings, Herbert Wigwe, the university is dedicated to providing a cutting-edge education aimed at equipping students for the challenges of tomorrow.

Located in Isiokpo, Rivers State, Wigwe University will offer a diverse range of programs through its four main colleges: the College of Management and Social Sciences, the College of Arts, the College of Science and Computing, and the College of Engineering.

As per the university’s official website, the College of Arts stands out as the most economical option, with tuition fees amounting to N9.6 million per academic session.

Students enrolled in the College of Engineering, College of Management and Social Sciences, and College of Science and Computing will each be charged N11,998,800 per session. These fees cover tuition, textbooks, laboratory materials, personal protective gear, project lab resources, e-learning resources, health insurance, membership in professional associations, student activities, and facility maintenance.

Accommodation expenses are separate, with various options available, such as a luxury single-bedroom apartment at N1,000,000 per month, a premium one-bedroom en-suite at N3,845,000 per session, a classic one-bedroom plan at N3,707,000 per session, and a classic two-bedroom plan at N3,500,000 per session. Payment can be made in two installments per session.

Regarding the decision to charge fees in dollars, the university management clarified that domestic students will pay in naira, while international students have the option to pay in dollars.

It’s worth remembering that Herbert Wigwe, his wife Chizoba, and their son Chizzy tragically lost their lives in a helicopter crash in California on February 9, 2024.
