I decided to write about the Top IT institutes in Nigeria because it is clear that IT is now the next big sector in the country like this testimony Letter of a working Graduate to His Jobless Past. I have pursued about 4 (four) different certification in various IT institutes in Nigeria, and I can tell you that I write from experience. Most institutes brag about having the best tutors and so many other facilities, but I believe this write-up would serve as a guide to intending students who wish to pursue a career in Information Technology.
Briefly, I will be looking at the top IT institutes in Nigeria and grade them according to personal interaction and relationship. Every of them is good in its or her own way, but this ranking will definitely serve as a guide.
Alabian Solutions Technologies
If you are interested in any software development course, Web Design/Development, Digital Marketing, Advanced Excel, then this is the best IT institute in Nigeria to attend.
Teaching Methodology = 10/10. They have practical intensive classes to allow you develop yourself and become a good coder.
Career Assistance: 9/10. With a wide coverage, they allow you participate in their projects with bigger organizations. This would give you the edge you need to have the real-life experience of all you are taught in class.
Intensive Practical Classes: 10/10: For all the above-highlighted courses offered at Alabian Solutions, they are really practical intensive. This has made them one of the best IT schools in Lagos state.
Mock Exams: 10/10: Every student is expected to come up with a project after school. This would enable instructors to have a proper assessment of the student’s knowledge.
Class Division: 10/10: Every Batch has limited number of student’s intake. This allows instructors to have a good rapport with the students.

Teaching Methodology = 7/10. Their instructors are good, but they teach like those who just know that those with real-life experience. Course materials are given students also. Nice place to learn.
Career Assistance: 2/10. Once you are done with your learning, your period of friendship with them is over. Nothing left for you.
Intensive Practical Sessions: 7/10. The majority of their instructors knows it but can’t just show you clearly how it is done.
Mock Examinations: 0/10
Class division: Just like IIHT, they believe in having a balanced class to help bond instructors with their students.
NEW HORIZONS Nigeria
A U.S franchise owned by a Nigerian is ranking third in my top 4 IT Institutes in Nigeria. The only gross I have with them is the overpopulated classes and the overpricing with relatively small benefits attached.
Teaching Methodology = 6/10. Instructors teach more of what they read than know.
Career Assistance: 8/10. Just like IIHT, New Horizons offers career assistance to students who finished from their institute but with lots of attachments to it.
Intensive Practical Sessions: 5/10. Except for some few talented instructors, the rest can mess up the huge amount you have paid to learn a course
