According to the Centre for World University Rankings, the University of Ibadan, the University of Nigeria, the University of Lagos, and Ahmadu Bello University are among the best universities in the world.

According to the list released on the global organization’s website on Monday, a total of 20,531 universities were ranked, with 2,000 reaching the global list.

Unibadan was ranked #1 in Nigeria and 1,163rd out of 2,000 universities worldwide.

UNN was ranked second in Nigeria and ranked 1,784th in the world.


UNILAG was ranked third in Nigeria and 1,875th globally, while ABU was ranked fourth nationally and 1,881st globally.

According to the ranking, the top five institutions in the world are Havard University in the United States, Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the United States, Stanford University in the United States, the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom, and the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom.

As a result, the rankings were determined by research, employability, faculty, and education rank.

Commenting on the national picture, the President of the Center for World University Rankings, Dr Nadin Mahassen said: “While it is encouraging to see Nigeria making gains in the rankings, funding to further promote the development and reputation of Nigeria’s higher education system is vital if the country aspires to be more competitive on the global stage. Efforts must be made to ensure that Nigeria attracts top academics and students, that increasing enrollment numbers at universities come alongside increases in a teaching capacity, and that tertiary education expenditure as a percentage of the national GDP steadily grows in the years to come.”
