Islamic universities are not quite many in Nigeria but there are two or three schools built on Islamic faith that stand out.

Al-Hikmah University in Kwara state, Crescent University in Ogun and Al-Qalam University in Katsina are three prominent Islamic tertiary institutions in Nigeria.

These schools like their Christian counterparts have rules that are designed for the students to guide and conform them to the teachings of Islam.

This means that any student who wishes to study in these universities must be aware of the rules and regulations that guide students' conducts in the institutions.
