The school fees vary for each programmes in UI. For instance, in 2013 I paid N100,850 for the first session and N48, 000 for the third semester (Msc Physics). Some departments pay more than what I paid in 2013. I think you should budget N150,000 for the first session of your postgraduate programme irrespective of the department.
