School Fees at Babcock University

A lot of people are afraid to enroll at private institutions because of the apparently expensive school fees. People all over social media argue that Christian private schools should have subsidized school fees because that would encourage church members to have the opportunity to attend.
Reasonable as this stance may sound, people have failed to consider the costs of running standard education, they have forgotten that quality is expensive, there are no two ways to that and whether they like it or not, having a private Christian University reduce their school fees is out-rightly impossible.
It is also worthy to note that Babcock University does not go on ahead to announce their fees only to come back to accept hidden charges and so compared to other private universities, BU seems to charge fair. The tuition fee at Babcock University is averagely 600,000-650,000 Naira and the fee includes the cost of feeding, medical insurance, accommodation, books and other miscellaneous charges.
