Best Universities In Nigeria

UI, Covenant, OAU among others have emerged as the best universities in Nigeria.

 

Newsonline reports that the University of Ibadan, Covenant University, and Obafemi Awolowo University have been ranked top in Nigeria by Webometrics in its latest rating.

 

Analysis of the latest ranking showed that no Nigerian university was among the top 1,000 in the world.

 

Though ranked first in Nigeria, UI rated 1,196 in the world.

 

Private-owned covenant University, which is second in Nigeria emerged 1,314 in the world; and OAU, third in Nigeria, but 1,503 in global ranking.

 

The University of Nigeria and the University of Lagos emerged fourth and fifth in Nigeria respectively.

 

The Ranking Web or Webometrics is the “largest academic ranking of Higher Education Institution” based on the assessment of Composite Indicators and Web Impact Factors”.

“The original aim of the Ranking is to promote academic web presence, supporting the Open Access initiatives for increasing significantly the transfer of scientific and cultural knowledge generated by the universities to the whole Society.

“In order to achieve this objective, the publication of rankings is one of the most powerful and successful tools for starting and consolidating the processes of change in the academia, increasing the scholars’ commitment and setting up badly needed long term strategies,” Webometrics said on its website.

Here is a full list of top 100 Nigerian universities, according to Webometrics
