Imagine! Only One Nigerian University Makes Times Top 800 Universities in the World

Only one Nigerian university is ranked among the
top 800 universities in the world, according to
Times Higher Education World University Rankings for 2016/2017 released this week.
report analysis showed
that the University of Ibadan, Nigeria’s oldest
university, is ranked 601st of the world’s top
800 universities featured in the survey, 200 steps
lower than Makerere University, Uganda, which is
ranked 401st.

California Institute of Technology, number one in the world

The ranking was released on Wednesday,
September 30, 2015.
The University of Cape Town, South Africa, at
120th position, is the highest ranked university in
Africa, 481 steps higher than the University of
Ibadan.
Five other South African universities are included
in the list of top notch universities in the world,
making it the highest from a single African
country.
They are University of Witwatersrand (20ist);
Stellenbosch University (301st); University of
KwaZulu-Natal (401st); University of Pretoria
(501st); and University of South Africa (601st).
Three Egyptian universities, Alexandria University,
Cairo University, and Suez Canal University are all
ranked 601st on the list.
Just like Nigeria and Uganda, only one Ghanaian
university, the University of Ghana is on the list,
and it is ranked 601st.
Morocco too has only one university, University
of Marrakech Cadi Ayyad (601th), on the list.
Altogether, 13 universities from six African
countries are included among the top 800
universities in the world.
But despite having only one university in the
ranking, this year’s rating is a great leap for
Nigeria. No Nigerian university has featured in
the ranking since 2011 when the survey began.
The California Institute of Technology, United
States, occupies the number one spot in the
world.
The University of Oxford, United Kingdom is on
the 2nd position, while Stanford University,
United States and University of Cambridge,
United Kingdom are on the 3rd and 4th positions.

  6. Biko!I disagree with this ranking.What is wrong with the whites? in fact they are mad! for giving themselves 1 2 3 and 4th position. most times I wondger why they feel their universities are better than our universities. The best way to do this ranking is to bring students from various schools in the world,get them to write sophisticated exams then the ranking of universities will be based on the students performance from each country and not this blind ranking they did.
