UI Rated Best Varsity In Nigeria By NUC – February 2016
Just when prospective students are about sitting for this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Exam that would secure them admission into Nigerian universities, the National Universities Commission, NUC, has rated the University of Ibadan, UI, first among its peers in Nigeria.
Other first generation universities in the NUC’s latest 2015 ranking are the University of Lagos coming second, University of Benin: third, Obafemi Awolowo University: fourth and the Ahmadu Bello University: fifth.
The ranking indicated that the University of Ilorin is sixth, University of Jos: seventh, University of Port Harcourt: eighth, University of Maiduguri: ninth, Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta: 10th, Lagos State University: 11th, Federal University of Technology, Owerri: 12th, while the Covenant University came 13th.
A report published by The Tribune on Friday indicates that the University of Nigeria, Nsukka was ranked 14th, Federal University of Technology, FUTA (15th), Nnamdi Azikiwe University, (16th), Enugu State University of Science and Technology (17th), Pan African University (18th) Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, LAUTECH (19th), Modibbo Adama University of Technology, Yola (20th).
I hope that you do not have to “see” the NUC for your institution to be ranked atop. EFCC should point their flash light in that direction.
What criteria did NUC use for the ranking? Webometrics, infrastructures, academic best practices, quality of products or what?
