WHICH NIGERIAN UNIVERSITY IS THE BEST?

The University of Ibadan is now rated as Nigeria’s best university by data. The University of Ibadan is now the most prestigious tertiary institution in Nigeria with 41,723 students. UI was established in 1948 and is still a leading academic centre for undergraduates.

When planning to apply for admission to any Nigerian university, there are a number of options to take into account. If you’re considering applying to a Federal University, keep in mind the risk of an ASUU strike. Choosing a state university or a privately owned university is typically the best course of action.

The body in charge of regulating tertiary institutions in Nigeria is the National Universities Commission. NUC Accredited Universities can be found in this article. Currently, 49 Federal Universities are accredited. Visit this website for further information: https://www.nuc.edu.ng/nigerian-universities/federal-universities/.
