NUC Denies Recent University Rankings

The National Universities Commission (NUC) has dissociated itself from the purported ranking of Nigerian universities making rounds on the Internet.

In a statement released by NUC, the commission said the list did not emanate from the supervisory agency of the nation’s university system.

The NUC added that the first ranking of Nigerian universities done by the agency in 2002 was based on the performance of the universities’ academic programmes in the 1999 and 2000 accreditation exercises.

The 2004 ranking, it stated, was based on percentage of academic programmes of the university with full accreditation status; compliance with carrying capacity; proportion of the academic staff of the university at professorial level; foreign content in workforce and students; and faculty members with outstanding academic achievements.

It was stated that the NUC also looked at research output; student completion rate; Ph.D graduate output for the year; stability of university calendar; and student-to-computer ratio.

The results of the exercise, the NUC added, were duly published and that the same would be done for future exercises.

I'm finding this news funny because I know one ex-UI (University of Ibadan) student that was bragging about his University being No. 1 on the list.  I hope he reads this. Lol...

And yes my University was No. 38 but we'll rise to the No. 1 spot in 2020 as our politicians will say (when they know something is impossible ...*Wink)

Did you know how important cord blood is? I'm guessing no but in the next couple of years, it will be much more popular than it is no...
