Abstract

The study's primary purpose was to explore the challenges and prospects of private higher education in Nigeria. Private Higher Education (PrHE) in Africa has grown significantly in recent years, and Nigeria has been at the forefront of this trend.

The desk research was used to gather information and data from sources such as books, journals, reports, databases, and online resources, including relevant websites. It is a cost-effective way to collect data relevant to the research topic, aims & objectives.

PrHE in Nigeria is an integral part of the African higher education landscape, proliferating in response to the increasing demand for higher education. As a result, PrHE in Nigeria has bright prospects to contribute significantly to the continent's development in terms of HE and economy.

However, PrHE in Nigeria faces several challenges: high tuition fees, limited funding, shortage of qualified and experienced academic staff, lack of government support, inadequate infrastructure and concerns about quality and accreditation. Of course, these challenges are not unique to Nigeria, but they are significant. They will need to be addressed if PrHE in Africa in general, particularly in Nigeria, is to continue to grow and thrive.
