The University of Nairobi has recorded the best ever results since the advent of university ranking in 2014. The university emerged position 6 in Africa and 697 in the world according to the January 2016 webometric ranking. This is a huge improvement from a previous position 7 in Africa and 855 in the world. This also makes it the top university in Kenya, a position it has continuously held.

 The ranking considers the following four parameters to determine the position of universities.

 Presence, which is the number of WebPages hosted in a university domain, openness which is the number of rich files published in the websites, impact which is the external links the university receives from other parties and finally excellence which is the number of high ranking publications in the online repository.  

The ranking proves the university’s commitment in line with the motto of being a world class university committed to scholarly excellence.  The ranking which is done for over 20,000 universities globally means that the University of Nairobi is in the top 1/3 of the world’s best universities beating some of the most prestigious institutions.  

The webometric rankings are published twice every year during the months of January and July.
