Africa: Only Six Nigerian Varsities Make Top 100 in Africa

Only six Nigerian universities are among the top 100 most popular in Africa, an international online universities and colleges (4International Colleges & Universities) ranking directory released early this month has said.

The ranking also listed universities in South Africa as the top 10 on the list. Other universities from Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana, Ghana, Morocco and even Sudan lead the six Nigerian universities that made the lost.

The six Nigerian Universities that appear in the top 100 are the University of Ibadan at 32nd position, University of Ilorin 34th, University of Benin 40th, Obafemi Awolowo University Ife 44th, Ahmadu Bello University Zaria 62nd and University of Jos 70th position.

No Nigeria private university or college made the list.

4International Colleges and Universities is an international higher education search engine and directory reviewing accredited colleges and universities around the world.

The aim of the website is to provide an approximate popularity ranking of world universities and colleges based upon the popularity of their websites.

It is intended to help international students and academic staff to understand how popular a specific University/College is in a foreign country.
