The University of Lagos has been ranked 1st in Nigeria and 8th 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.
uniRankTM, in a bid to answer the question of “What are the most popular Universities in Africa and Nigeria?”, published the 2020 African University Ranking of the top 200 recognized higher-education institutions in Africa and of 160 Nigerian higher-education institutions in Nigeria respectively.
The ranking was done based on the uniRank’s selection criteria stated below:
- The University must be officially recognized, licensed and/or accredited by the appropriate higher education-related organization in each country;
- The University must 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) and
- The University must 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.
The Vice Chancellor, Professor Oluwatoyin, T. Ogundipe, FAS, on behalf of the Management, Senate, members of staff and students congratulates the University on this feat.
