✅ NEW - car park, swimming pool, 24 hours light/security and more.
The University of Port Harcourt was named as the sixth best university in Africa, trailing four South African and one Ugandan university.

According to TheCable, the list was dominated by South Africa and Egypt, saw the southern Africa country amass 12 positions on the ranking, with the north African country trailing with half a dozen schools.


The list was compiled by the World Economic Forum (WEF).

Quoting Times Higher Education (THE), WEF said the universities are “derived from the methodology for the current world university ranking, using the 13 factors (below), combining THE’s own enormous database of statistics along with the Elsevier’s Scopus database – a system that highlights some of the continent’s top performers in terms of how often research papers are referred to and cited by other academics globally”. “This methodology is designed for the research-led globally facing university. Times Higher Education emphasised that not everyone in Africa will find the metrics appropriate to their mission or their strategic priorities making this ranking a starting point of a longer, inclusive conversation involving African institutions.”
