UNN Current Ranking

UNN Current Ranking

University of Nigeria always comes amongst the top whenever universities in Nigeria are ranked despite the parameters used. This is apparently the
case because the school authority has steadily made efforts since inception to improve the course content, research, student affairs, reward of excellence, staff welfare, infrastructure, and a transparent system.
For example in July 2015, according to Journals Consortiums, University of Nigeria was 2nd Best University in Nigeria as well as 13th Best University in Africa after about 1,447 universities were compared by the Consortium.
The high rank of UNN has made it one of the highest sought-after schools in Nigeria.
