List of Best Nigeria Universities Rankings for 2023 Released!

  • Guides

The annual list of best Nigerian universities ranking by Webometrics for 2023 has been released. For those who are not yet aware, Webometrics is a very respectable portal that grades universities based on various metrics.

Webometrics is a ranking system which is used for selecting the world’s universities based on a composite indicator that takes into account, both the volume of the Web content (number of web pages and files) and the visibility and impact of these web publications according to the number of external links (site citations) they received from credible sources.

We decided to check on Nigeria, and according to Webometrics, the University of Ibadan (UI), is the #1 best university in Nigeria for 2023.

The University of Port Harcourt takes the top spot in Nigeria and is rated sixteen (16) in Africa and 1249 in the world (Personally, I think the best University in Nigeria to be rated 1,249 in the world means that our educational system is worse.)

2023 Top Ten Nigerian Universities.

  • University of Port Harcourt (Uniport)
  • University of Ibadan (UI)
  • University of Lagos (UniLag)
