University of Ibadan (UI) Ranks 1st in Nigeria and 401-500 in the World

University of Ibadan (UI) ranked 1st in Nigeria and 401-500 in the world in the 2021 Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings.

University of Ibadan (UI) Ranked High

The Times Higher Education (THE) has today, 2nd September 2020, released its World University Rankings 2021. It is gratifying to note that the University of Ibadan has been ranked in the 401- 500 band. This is our best performance since 2016 when the University of Ibadan started featuring on this highly respected and prestigious Universities ranking body, and in spite of a fiercer competition engendered by an increase in the number of universities assessed worldwide by the THE.

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings are the only global performance tables that judge research-intensive universities across all their core missions: teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. The THE uses 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons, trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry and governments.

The performance indicators are grouped into five areas: Teaching (the learning environment); Research (volume, income and reputation); Citations (research influence); International outlook (staff, students and research); and Industry income (knowledge transfer).

We acknowledge with thanks the support of the Federal Government under President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, the Federal Ministry of Education under Mallam Adamu Adamu, and its agencies especially the National Universities Commission under Professor Abubakar Rasheed, FNAL and the Tertiary Education Trust Fund under Prof Elias Suleiman Bogoro, FAS, the Council under Nde Joshua Mutka Waklek, rnni, the Senate, our staff, students, alumni/alumnae and friends of Ul. We appreciate your consistent support. We trust we can always count on your invaluable assistance and encouragement in the years ahead.

Congratulations to all of us in the Ul Project.

To God alone be the honour, glory and adoration.

Idowu Olayinka
University of Ibadan Nigeria.
