Our prestigious University, the University of Lagos has been ranked 1st in Nigeria and 12th in Africa, by uniRank University Ranking™, the leading international higher education directory and search engine featuring reviews and rankings of over 13,600 officially recognized Universities and Colleges in 200 countries.
In a bid to answer the question of “What are the most popular Universities in Africa?”, uniRankTM published the 2019 African University Ranking of the top 200 recognized higher-education institutions in Africa.
The ranking was done based on the uniRank’s selection criteria stated below:
- be officially recognized, licensed and/or accredited by the appropriate higher education-related organization in each country
- be officially licensed or authorised to grant at least four-year undergraduate degrees (Bachelor’s Degrees) and/or postgraduate degrees (Master’s and Doctoral Degrees).
- provide higher education courses mainly in a traditional face-to-face learning format delivered through on-site facilities.
The aim is to provide a non-academic League Table of the top Universities in Africa based on valid, unbiased and non-influenceable web metrics provided by independent web intelligence sources rather than data submitted by the Universities themselves.
uniRank™ also analysed the University of Lagos in 1st position in the national ranking (Nigeria), with the University of Ilorin, Ahmadu Bello University, Obafemi Awolowo University and University of Nigeria in 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th positions respectively.
