The Times Higher Education (THE) has named Nigeria the best destination for studying medicine in West Africa.
According to the organization, the University of Ibadan is the best destination for any student who wants to study medicine in West Africa.
According to the Nigeria World University’s 2020 World University Rankings (WUR), Ibadan ranks between 301 and 400 in the clinical, preclinical, and health rankings, while the University of Ghana ranks between 501 and 600 among 1,500 selected top universities worldwide.
Although Nigeria is not the top travel destination for medical studies on the African continent, it is the best place for the West African region.
It replaced Ghana’s first university, the University of Ghana, which took second place in West Africa.
The tertiary ranking is based on 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators that measure the performance of an institution in terms of teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international orientation.
The University of Ibadan (UI) was founded in 1932 and was the first university to be founded in Nigeria.
Originally an affiliated college of the University of London, it was recognized as an independent college in 1962. The University of Ghana was founded in 1948 as the “University College of the Gold Coast” – an affiliated college of the University of London – largest of the 10 public universities in Ghana.
The Times Higher Education World university ranking 2020 includes almost 1,400 universities in 92 countries and is considered the largest and most diverse university ranking ever. The only university ranking that has been independently audited by a service company.
