Nigerian University Appears Among Best 1000 Universities In The World


Despite all the educational challenges in the country, the University of Ibadan (UI) has undoubtedly been a pride of nation as it appears to be the only Nigerian University in the list.
List of Best Universities in the world
The University was ranked 801 along with several others. This inclusion was made by the Academic Ranking of World Universities (AWRU) and the Center for World Universities Ranking (CWUR). These organizations had released a list of top 500 and 100 in 2016, but no Nigerian University was presented then.

CWUR said that Nigerian universities were not considered for the ranking earlier because of lack of quality research.

AWRU, who did not give a reason for Nigeria’s absence, made it clear that the criteria for ranking were the number of alumni and staff publishing journals in Nature and Science, number of alumni and staff winning Nobel prizes and Field medals.
South Africa and Egypt had the highest number of universities on the list from the continent.
