UG Retains Top Position in Times Higher Education (THE) Rankings

UG Retains Top Position in Times Higher Education (THE) Rankings: According to the recent release of the Times Higher Education Rankings, the University of Ghana retains its top and enviable position as number one (1) in Ghana and 20th on the continent.

In Africa, University of Ghana is ranked 20th, and is also ranked within the 800 – 1,000 band on the global scale.

Almost 1,400 universities in 92 countries were included in this year’s rankings, with the assessment based on 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators that measure an institution’s performance.

The performance indicators are grouped into five areas: Teaching (the learning environment); Research (volume, income and reputation); Citations (research influence); International outlook (staff, students and research); and Industry Income (knowledge transfer).

The THE University rankings is to be distinguished from the Impact Rankings which shows how the global higher education sector is working towards the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

University of Ghana also ranked second in Ghana in this year’s THE Global University Impact Rankings.

University of Ghana’s ranking was driven by contributions to Good Health and Well-Being, Zero Hunger, No Poverty, and Partnership for the Goals.

Congratulations to all members of the University community who continue to put in a lot of work to ensure University of Ghana’s sustained image not only in Ghana and West Africa, but maintaining a strong presence globally.
