The University of Lagos has been ranked 1st in Nigeria and and one of the best universities in Africa as she ranks 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.
