ARWU is unarguably the world's no 1 university ranking body. It feels good to appear on this list for the first time ever. Congratulations to all those who have made this possible- The Federal Government of Nigeria (our proprietor), Council, Senate, Management, Staff, Students, Alumni and Friends of UI. With your continued support we are poised to scale greater heights in the coming years.
The University of Ibadan seems to be doing something right. I guess congratulations are in order!
For those who may be wondering....
“ARWU uses six objective indicators to rank world universities, including the number of alumni and staff winning Nobel Prizes and Fields Medals, number of highly cited researchers selected by Clarivate Analytics, number of articles published in journals of Nature and Science, number of articles indexed in Science Citation Index - Expanded and Social Sciences Citation Index, and per capita performance of a university. More than 1800 universities are actually ranked by ARWU every year and the best 1000 are published”
