Veritas University Abuja is a privately-owned
university in Abuja. It is owned by the Catholic church of Nigeria and is
located at Bwari area council, FCT Abuja.
It was founded by the Catholic Bishops Conference of
Nigeria through a resolution given at its March 2002 meeting in Abuja.
The initiative came from the Bishops’ quest for a
University that would provide high quality tertiary education in line with the
noble tradition of the Catholic Church.
Even though the school got its license to operate in
May 2007, it did not commence admission of students till October 2008 at its
take-off campus in Obehie Town, Abia state, Nigeria.
Veritas has 5 undergraduate colleges namely, College
of Natural and Applied sciences, College of Humanities, College of Management
sciences, College of Social sciences, College of Education and the College of
Postgraduate Studies which would cover Postgraduate Diploma, Master of Arts and
Master of Science degree programs for now.
The school fees ranges from 430,000 Naira to 490,000
Naira for both new students and returning students depending on the course of
study plus an extra 15,000 Naira for a compulsory certification course.
