Best (Top 10) Universities in Nigeria & Universities Ranking 2019

Best Universities in NigeriaNigeria currently has 152 universities registered and approved by the Nigeria University Commission (NUC), though there are so many Universities claiming to be approved and registered in Nigeria especially the private ones, that is the reason the NUC has come out clearly to list all approved Universities in Nigeria, the List shows there are currently 43 Federal Universities, 48 State universities and 79 Private Universities in Nigeria.

The main issue here is that everybody wants to attend the best university in Nigeria or at least one of the top 10 Universities Nigeria, hence, the reason for ranking universities base on merit (how they perform and what they offer).

Please note that campusbiz.com.ng does not rank Universities, rather, we rely on the lists released by the NUC (The Nigeria University Commission); Times Higher Education World University Ranking (they are the world’s number one body for ranking Universities), QS World University Rankings, U.S. News & World Report Best Global University Ranking, Academic Ranking of World Universities, and The Reuters Top 100: The World’s Most Innovative Universities; we also have the List from “Webometrics Ranking of World Universities” (Webometrics is an initiative of the Cybermetrics Lab, a research group belonging to the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), the largest public research body in Spain. Please note that the NUC has not released their ranking for 2019, hence, we have omitted the old list it released since it may not reflect the present performance of the Universities.

So we have the list of 100 top Universities in Nigeria, best Universities in Nigeria and the very best University in Nigeria.

 Best University in Nigeria 2019, University of Ibadan, Kutti hall, (The University currently ranks as the number one in Nigeria according to Webometrics)

The Best University in Nigeria 2019 Ranking

The Award for the Best University in Nigeria goes to the prestigious UNIVERSITY OF IBADAN (UI), Ibadan, South-West Nigeria and the much talked about COVENANT UNIVERSITY (CU), Ota, Ogun State, South-West Nigeria

Why we are listing 2 Universities in this position:  This our list is based on rankings by Webometrics World University Ranking and Times Higher Education World University Ranking. While Webometrics chooses University of Ibadan as the best University in Nigeria and places Covenant University as the fourth; Times Higher Education chooses Covenant University as the best University in Nigeria, places University of Ibadan as second and University of Nigeria (NSUKKA) as third.

A look at the list from all of the bodies below will let you see this.

Top Universities in Nigeria 2018 List

(Times Higher University List)

This list if from the Times Higher Education World University Ranking (they are the world’s number one body for ranking Universities).

The THE only list three Nigerian Universities in its 2019 ranking and they are:

  1. Covenant University
  2. University of Ibadan (UI)
  3. University of Nigeria (NSUKKA)

The above list from the THE is a big deal because it suggests that Covenant University has successfully displaced the University of Ibadan as the best University in Nigeria despite being a private University.
