The University of Ibadan (UI), Covenant University (CU), and Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) have been ranked in the top three among the best Nigerian universities based on their web presence.


Webometrics, a ranking system for world varsities, released a list of 260 institutions in Nigeria by web presence.

The ranking is based on a composite indicator that takes into account the volume of the web content as well as the visibility and impact of these web publications according to the number of external in-links (site citations) they received.

UI is ranked number one, followed by CU in second place while OAU came third. Closely following is the University of Nigeria (UNN), which snagged fourth place, while the University of Lagos (UNILAG) took the fifth spot.
