On Wednesday, THE released its rankings for the year 2021 wherein UI emerged in the 401- 500 band and the best in West Africa.

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

Reacting in a statement, Idowu Olayinka, vice-chancellor of UI, commended the institution for the achievement despite the “fiercer competition engendered by an increase in the number of universities assessed worldwide.”

“It is gratifying to note that the University of Ibadan has been ranked in the 401- 500 band. This is our best performance since 2016 when the University of Ibadan started featuring on this highly respected and prestigious Universities ranking , and in spite of a fiercer competition engendered by an increase in the number of universities assessed worldwide by the THE,” the statement read.

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

“We acknowledge with 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. to all of us in the UI Project.”
