The University of Ibadan (UI) has been named among the top 500 varsities in the world in the 2021 Times Higher Education (THE) rankings.

On Tuesday, THE released its rankings for the year 2021 wherein UI emerged in the 401- 500 band and the best in West Africa, a rating that comes as the institution’s best in comparison to its previous numbers over the years.

Reacting to the feat in a statement, Idowu Olayinka, vice-chancellor of UI, emphasised THE’s criteria of teaching, research, knowledge transfer, and international outlook.

“The Times Higher Education World University Rankings are the only global performance tables that judge research-intensive universities across all their core missions,” the statement read.

“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.

“We trust we can always count on your invaluable assistance and encouragement in the years ahead. Congratulations to all of us in the UI Project.”

THE had realised its rankings using 13 “carefully calibrated” performance indicators to provide comparisons, “trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry and governments.”



While figures for 2016, 2017, and 2018 ranked the institution in the 601-800, 801-1000, and 801-1000 respectively, UI emerged in the 601-800 and 501-600 band for 2019 and 2020 accordingly.

UI resoundly beat Covenant University this year. That is sad!

CU management has explaining to do. How can a school 40% on strike be beating you like this.

Some really poor standard by West Africa.

I was wondering what metric they used to arrive at that conclusion so I checked their website.

To raise your university’s global profile with Times Higher Education, please contact branding@timeshighereducation.com

The above was present there on their website
