What are the most popular Universities in Africa?

FAU answers this question by publishing the 2023 African University Ranking of the top 200 recognized higher-education institutions in Africa for her first executive committee meeting at Ghana on June 26-8, 2023 and it was issued by the following AfruniRank selection criteria:

Being chartered, licensed or accredited by the appropriate higher education-related organization in each country. Offering at least three-year bachelor’s degrees or postgraduate master’s or doctoral degrees by delivering courses predominantly in a traditional, non-distance education format.

AfruniRank aims to provide a dynamic-academic affirmative table of the top Universities in Africa each year but based on valid, balanced and non-influenceable web metrics provided by independent FAU intelligence sources rather than data submitted by the Universities themselves.
