The University of Sierra Leone, comprised of Fourah Bay College, the Institute of Public Administration and Management, and the College of Medicine and Allied Health Sciences, has been ranked one of Africa’s best universities in 2023.
The ranking is done by Times Higher Education, the data provider underpinning university excellence in every continent. The new ranking seeks to highlight African higher education institutions while also addressing local higher education concerns.
The 2023 rankings were formally released at the organization’s inaugural meeting in the region, which took place in June 2023 in collaboration with Ashesi University.
The ranking is top by South Africa’s University of the Witwatersrand, according to the report. The University of Johannesburg and Tanzania’s Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences finished second and third, respectively.
Despite the fact that South Africa has the most universities in the top ten (four), Nigeria has the most institutions in the top 37.
The ranking includes 88 institutions from 20 countries, including Nigeria, Ghana, Rwanda, Mauritius, Kenya and Mozambique.
