For another record time since its establishment in 1948, the University of Ibadan has emerged the best in Nigeria.
Its enviable position arose from the latest ranking of African universities and higher institutions conducted by Journals Consortium on 1,447 higher institutions.
The Journals Consortium utilized research publications and citations from the last five years (2010 to 2014) as well as visibility on the internet.

In Africa, UI was the eight best university, in a ranking largely dominated by South African institutions which occupied six of the first best 10 institutions.
The results of the ranking which is available on their website indicated that South African institutions dominate the top 10 with University of Cape Town topping the rank with a Total Influence Factor (TIF) of 45.02, followed by Cairo University (43.43) and the University of Pretoria (43.35).african-university-ranking-jide-salu
