Top Ethiopian Universities

A  recent global ranking of the top Ethiopian universities for 2018 has been made public, and the result is something unconnected to what we have seen in previous years. It appears that some Universities who were not excited about their former position in previous years have worked harder to make sure that they reach the top of the list in order to be ranked among top Ethiopian universities.

Based on Webometrics Ranking of World Universities, some of the universities that were ranked higher in Ethiopia as at 2017, are no longer worthy of the title and as such, have been replaced by other presently leading schools which worked hard enough to make their way up the list of top Ethiopian universities.

Check below to see the latest positions of all the top Ethiopian universities that made the list and also their world ranking. More importantly, note that in the world ranking, a total of 63 Ethiopian Universities made the list. The ranking was done based on four very important factors which include their Presence, rate of Impact, Openness and Academic excellence.
