You may be wondering who uniRankTM is or what they stand for? uniRank University Ranking™, is the leading international higher education directory and search engine featuring reviews. They rank over 13,600 officially recognized Universities and Colleges in 200 countries.


The ranking was done based on the uniRank’s selection criteria stated below:

  1. The University must be officially recognized, licensed and/or accredited by the appropriate higher education-related organization in each country;
  2. The University must be officially licensed or authorized to grant at least four-year undergraduate degrees (Bachelor’s Degrees) and/or postgraduate degrees (Master’s and Doctoral Degrees) and
  3. 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.

The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Oluwatoyin, T. Ogundipe, FAS, on behalf of the Management, Senate, members of staff and students congratulate the University on this feat.
