List of accredited universities in Benin republic 2022


Benin was originally known as Dahomey and is now known as the Republic of Benin. It is a country in West Africa. Nigeria is to the east, Togo is to the west, and Burkina Faso and Niger are to the north.

Benin’s official language is French, but the country’s indigenous languages are also widely spoken.

Even in the year 2021, there has been a lot of talk about the Republic of Benin closing illegitimate universities.

There are also schools that are not NUC accredited/certified, and whose courses and credentials are not recognized in Nigeria.

This isn’t to suggest there aren’t any approved and accredited universities that offer high-quality education.

This article contains a complete list of NUC and NYSC authorized and certified universities in the Republic of Benin.

Other important details regarding these universities are included in the article, such as admissions requirements and program offerings. Below.

Before we get started, I’d like to emphasize that the list below is not in any particular order, and that these colleges are not the only ones.

There are a good number of authorized and top universities in the Republic of Benin.

These universities were picked because they are well-known, reputable, and dominated by Nigerians and international students.
