Covenant University is a product of the Liberation Commission that God gave to Bishop Oyedepo in a May 1981 vision-encounter. 

The drive to embark on the process of founding CU came about October of 1999, one month after the dedication of Faith Tabernacle, the largest church auditorium in the world, built in one year with only local resources. 


One of the biggest challenges facing the Nigerian educational system today is the dearth of qualified academics with the relevant postgraduate qualification and practitioner base. Nigerian Universities. 

Covenant University’s School of Postgraduate Studies was set up to provide a solution to this challenge. Starting from the bedrock of a Staff Development platform, the University, through the School of Postgraduate Studies, is committed to developing and implementing postgraduate programmes which will provide the foundation for achieving the University’s goal of being a leading Research University in its desire to align itself with Nigeria’s Vision.

A spiritual school for the disciplined
Anonymous rated 2 out of 5 stars

The biggest take from my years of study is the friends I made connections with despite my very introverted persona. In my honest opinion, studying in Covenant can best be described as a gated faith-based community with highly stringent rules.
