UNIPORT Ranked 6th University Among 30 African University By World Economic Forum



World Economic Forum, has placed the University of Port Harcourt, UNIPORT, as the sixth best university in Africa.
The federal government-owned institution trailed four South African and one Ugandan university in the list
of top 30 schools.
Noting that the ranking is “essentially based on the amount of citations there are for the university’s work”, WEF quoted Times Higher Education, THE, as noting that 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.”
In the list dominated by schools from
South Africa and Egypt, the former amassed 12 positions on the
ranking, while the latter followed suit with half a dozen institutions.
A breakdown of the report show that
Morocco and Tunisia had three universities apiece, while Kenya,
Ghana, Cameroon, Uganda, Ethiopia and Nigeria each had a single
university in the 2015 ranking.
