Babcock University Declares Sky-High Tuition Fees For Next Session. Students Protest

babcock-university

Well, they are not protesting in school or complaining to their school administration…they are protesting via the media. A few students from the school have sent mails complaining about the exorbitant fees they are being made to pay to get an education. The university just released the school fees for the next session and some of the students feel its outrageous. See it below…

1) Accounting- N1.5million
2) Nursing- N1million
3) Law- N2million
4) Medicine- N3million
5) Others- N860,000

The students are scared to protest in their school because they could get suspended. Babcock is a Christian University and claims to be a non-profit organization, so students don’t understand why they have to pay such huge amounts to school there. But here’s the thing; complaining about the school fees of a private university is like complaining about the cost of a first class plane ticket. You have other options; business class, premium economy class, economy class. If this is too much for you, move to a federal school, state school or less expensive private schools. Not that I support these fees, I think it’s ridiculous. You pay N3million a session to become a doctor and when you eventually get a job, you make less than N200 thousand a month…doesn’t make much sense to me…but that’s the way the school wants to operate. You either take it or leave it! What do you guys think?

But meanwhile, is there anything the federal government can do for these students? Like, make their University bring down the fees?

  1. The church and its affiliates are no longer for the poor. Gone are those days when the Roman Catholic Church, Anglican Church and Baptists build schools, orphanages and hostels for the poor. The Christian churches today are no longer interested in working for the basic Christian principle of taking care of the poor. It is now all about wealth acquisition. I sincerely doubt if they still believe in heaven as our final destination the way they pursue and worship Mammon.

  2. I think half of the students shld decide to leave to oda private skuls dat a better like BOWEN JABU BELLS and so on even Afe babalola university is not this expensive and babcock is a so called christian school. By the tym less number of students come per year things will be made right. Even d congregation dat contributed money to stat d institution cannot afford to send dier children dere. Den y is d school in existence???????
