    Methods of payment in Nigeria

    We are aware that currency exchange restrictions may prevent students from paying fees in full. We have two methods that will allow you to divide the payment and bypass the issue:

    • Select the 'offline payment' method during your registration and submit two bank transfers or drafts.
    • Notify the Fees Office that you wish to make part-payments by credit/debit card. An invoice will be added to your fees account. You can then log on and make payments via this statement or by telephone.
