Cotonou Universities & School Fees (2024)

Education in West Africa has grown to a strong level over the past decades. Gone are the days when students are so limited when it comes to tertiary institutions to attend. The problem never used to be unavailability of institutions, the main challenge was always getting that quality education and finding universities with standard learning culture and Adequate facilities.

Today, Nigerians have the choice to opt for universities in neighbouring countries, one of which Cotonou in Benin Republic has benefitted from. These institutions not only offer almost the same level of education most Nigerian universities offer, they also give students as good an exposure as they can imagine. They also offer relevant courses and their certificates are as recognized as most Nigerian school certificates.

In this article, we will take a look at the list of popular universities in Cotonou and highlight their school fees. It is important to note that the currency has been converted to Naira for better understanding.
