UNILAG: Medical students to pay N190,000 as tuition fees
Henceforth, students of the college of medicine in the university of Lagos will cough out N190,000 as tuition fee.
This was contained in a statement dated July 20, 2023, by the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, UNILAG branch following a meeting with the top management staff.
The union, in the statement, said the VC stated that fees would be increased for UNILAG undergraduate students.
It could be recalled that students of the institution previously paid N19,000 but the management has fixed new fees at N190,250 for students studying medicine while those courses that require laboratory and studio, students are to pay N140,250.
According to SSANU, the VC, Prof. Folasade Ogunsola met with representatives of the three non-academic staff unions on Thursday, July 20th to discuss issues concerning members’ welfare.
“During the meeting, the proposed fees for undergraduate students of UNILAG were disclosed.
“Students without lab and studio use will pay N100,750, those with lab use will pay N140,250 and the college of medicine would pay N190,250,” the statement said.
A SSANU representative at the meeting, Rasaki Yusuf asked for a rebate for staff members with children in the university but the VC insisted that the new charges were set nationally and could not be modified for specific categories of students.
Ogunsola, however, gave the option of staff paying in instalments but with a condition to pay up one month before final exams.
