Federal universities only
Education is not cheap here but subsidised.
Unfortunately, govt officials feed fat on the money set aside for education.

NOUN will tell you their school fee is #41,000, but until when you then start with them you'll know they lied,







I'm talking from experience, I wouldn't advice anybody to school in NOUN if you don't have a job, because they drink money like water there.
