What Are Federal Universities?
Federal universities are tertiary institutions that are funded and managed by the federal government.

These schools are spread across the 36 State in Nigeria and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), there are some benefits of applying to theses schools when compared to Private & State owned Universities, more details on this shortly.
