Top Accredited English Speaking Universities in Benin Republic

As at the time of writing this post, the Nigerian educational sector is currently in a bad shape, with our higher institutions going on strike and not forgetting the WAEC and JAMB hurdles our students fail to scale through, one can only sit and wonder where our beloved country is headed.


Many Nigerians are now seeking quality education in neighboring countries like Republic of Benin and Ghana. Why waste time at home, when you can enroll in some of these foreign institutions, get your degree and go for service without the headaches of strike and JAMB.

    Today, I’m going to list some government approved English speaking universities in Republic of Benin and how to contact them for admission enquires.
