According to this Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2022, fourteen (14) RUFORUM member Universities have been ranked among the top 83 Universities in Africa.
This year, the Times Higher Education Young University Rankings list the world’s best universities that are 50 years old or younger. The table is based on the same 13 performance indicators as the flagship THE World University Rankings.

A further 251 institutions are listed with “reporter” status, meaning that they provided data but did not meet our eligibility criteria to receive a rank.
