Top 50 Universities in Nigeria

Although there are various factors used to rank Nigerian Universities, we hold that the official list released by the Nigeria Universities Commission remains the most credible and authentic.

You will find other rankings online, such as the Webometrics ranking, which ranks Nigerian universities in terms of web presence. And the question is, when did web presence become the yardstick for measuring qualitative education?

And in the latest Webometrics ranking, I saw Covenant University on the second spot. And I quickly dismissed it as a questionable list. How on earth can Covenant University come before the likes of UNILAG, UI, and UNILORIN?

Anyway, below is the most recent ranking of the top 50 Nigerian Universities, as officially released by the NUC.
