African university numbers double in U-Multirank

April 7, 2015

 
By Christiaan van der Merwe

The number of African universities in the latest iteration of the EU-funded university comparison tool, U-Multirank, has doubled from last year.

There were 24 institutions from eight African countries in the list for 2015 released on 31 March, up from 12 in last year’s inaugural rankings.

While not a university ranking in the traditional sense, in that it doesn’t list universities from best to worst, U-Multirank awards scores ranging from ‘A’ (very good) to ‘E’ (weak) in 31 categories, broadly divided into five themes.

The 2015 edition added three new subject areas for examination: computer science, psychology and medicine

The institutions which appear for the first time in 2015 are:

  • Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (Ghana)
  • Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane (Morocco)
  • Alexandria University (Egypt)
  • Arab Academy for Science, Technology and Maritime Transport (Egypt)
  • Ain Shams University (Egypt)
  • Cairo University (Egypt)
  • Mansoura University (Egypt)
  • Higher Institute of Economics and Business (Cape Verde)
  • Cape Peninsula University of Technology (South Africa)
  • University of Pretoria (South Africa)
  • University of Namibia (Namibia)
  • University of Sfax (Tunisia)

Outside South Africa, only Cairo University achieved an ‘A’ score for its publication output.
