Top 100 Best Universities in Nigeria 2024 [Updated]


Wondering which universities in Nigeria are leading the pack? Look no further than the Webometrics ranking, the biggest ranking system for higher education institutions worldwide. It judges universities based on their online presence. This means it takes into account not just their websites, but also how much research they publish online, how many links they have, and how often their work is cited.

Cybermetrics Lab, a research group in Spain, released the latest ranking for Nigeria in 2024. Here’s a peek at the top 5:

  1. University of Ibadan: The undisputed champion, UI shines with its strong online presence and research output.
  2. Covenant University: Close behind, this private university demonstrates a commitment to being a digital leader.
  3. Obafemi Awolowo University: Another esteemed institution, OAU maintains a robust online platform for its academic activities.
  4. University of Nigeria: Renowned for its historical significance, UNN is also making waves in the online academic space.
  5. University of Lagos: A prominent urban university, UNILAG leverages technology to connect with its large student body.

Remember, Webometrics isn’t the only way to rank universities. There are other factors to consider, like teaching quality, student satisfaction, and international reputation. But when it comes to online presence and research influence, this ranking offers valuable insights.
