Top Private Universities in Nigeria


What are the top Private Universities in Nigeria? uniRank answers this question by publishing a complete list of Private Nigerian Universities ranked by the 2024 uniRank University Ranking and meeting the following uniRank selection criteria:

  • being chartered, licensed or accredited by the appropriate Nigerian higher education-related organization
  • offering at least three-year bachelor's degrees or postgraduate master's or doctoral degrees
  • delivering courses predominantly in a traditional, non-distance education format

uniRank aims to provide a non-academic League Table of the top Private Nigerian Universities based on valid, unbiased and non-influenceable web metrics provided by independent web intelligence sources rather than data submitted by the Universities themselves.
