No Nigerian university makes world’s most influential list

The annual Global Universities' ranking by Quacquarell Symonds (QS), was released recently and no Nigerian university made the top 1, 000 most influential schools in the world. Seven universities in South Africa and six in Egypt were among the top 700. Sad for us. Check on it HERE

Tele nkan...what do u expect?..who respects any of the universities?....the private ones are money grabbing...the federal ones are living on past glory...the affluent lecturers are all on sabbatical leave....so what remains?..

Saad...a foreign second degree is what most Nigerian graduates aim for...because even d Nigerian degree cert is not respected in the homeland...

I'd rather school in Ghana...than Nigeria...so sad.

A man once said that he will rather be treated by a 70 year old Nigerian veterinary doctor than a recent Nigerian medical doctor graduate!!..that tells the story...no confidence in our current education system compared with the good old days..

Its not a surprise....The govt is focused on mere political party n he's reign as president again than the future. Basically, d youths who r meant to b the developing force are asked to sit @ home while "foolish old mumus" who have been there since independence are still calling d shots. So tell me how can there be progress. Huh? Sick country, greedy leaders and scared youths.

Linda we can never achieve that yet oo only if our wonderful government and leaders make good impact on the education system. Mehn it's really sad that we have got all systems in Nigeria in a dead state and we are definitely government to ourselves»we provide ourselves good education through private universities. »We provide electricity for ourselves too,in short all.Instead of then to work on our education thing they are there talking about 2015 election and owing ASUU.*sigh* I fit write book on this cef *Eyes rolling*.I hope I didn't gbagaun

hilary obiorah said...

What do they teach in the Nigerian university sef? It is only when you graduate that you realize that Nigerian schools don't educate you, they just saturate your brain, walahi!!! They just pack theory on your head and fail to help you put em into practice, leaving unprepared for the real world. The strikes does not even help, little wonder why people are trooping to even Niger! For quality education.

Anonymous said...

It starts from buying and selling and upgrading of waec results from secondary school level even sorting out of common entrance exams of primary school level. In all, when time seemed so innocent; an evil seed was planted by the mating of a low performance driven teacher and a greed driven lazy parent when our valueless naira exchanged their hands thus selling any hope of a bright future of an innocent child unfortunately born into a soceity that holds no value for excellence through hardwork. I initially thought we had any university, only to find out it was a political body called ASUU. So why would anybody from this part of void be dissapointed when human beings rank their universities.

Seriously were you expecting any Nigerian university to be on the list?
No parent who has the capability wants his children to attend university in Nigeria. Nigerians now attend university in the republic on benin!The lecturers only sell handouts and request money for marks that is why most of our graduates are unemployable if we are true to ourselves. Some can hardly spell or string sentences correctly.
No research of any sort which is what the academia is know for. Something needs to be done and urgently too

Every year Nigerians go to Ghana and spend more than $7,000 yearly developing the educational sector of Ghana, hundreds of students paying for almost the same form of Education you should get in Nigeria,(without asuu strikes or cultism).

My Point is we do not value the little things in this country. There are so many ways to make Nigerian schools and universities self sustaining (eradicating the frequent strikes) but our leaders are not equip to think!...

May God help Nigeria.
