Covenant University clinches top spot in Times Higher Educat

Covenant University, Ota, Ogun State has emerged as the best in Nigeria according to the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings for 2024. 

This marks a significant achievement for the private institution, placing it ahead of established contenders like the University of Ibadan (UI) and the University of Lagos (UNILAG).

The ranking evaluated 1,904 universities across 108 countries and regions. Universities were assessed based on 18 indicators grouped into five key areas: teaching, research environment, research quality, industry income, and international outlook.

Covenant University secured a position within the 800-1,000 global bracket, surpassing UI which landed in the same band. The Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA) claimed the third position nationally, falling within the 1001-1200 band globally.

This recognition signifies Covenant University's growing reputation for academic excellence and its commitment to providing a well-rounded educational experience. The university's performance across various metrics, including research and international collaborations, has likely contributed to its rise in the rankings.

While Covenant University basks in the top spot, this ranking also highlights the continued competitive landscape of Nigerian universities. Established institutions like UI and UNILAG remain strong contenders, and their performance in future rankings will be closely watched.
