This year’s Webometrics Ranking of Universities worldwide was published earlier this year. The ratings give a rough indicator of how various colleges and universities are performing on numerous parameters including web presence, the richness of their internet content, and excellence.
We have been looking at the Webometrics Kenyan Universities ranking and have compiled a summary of the ratings accorded to our local institutions to see which university is king. Well, it’s clear that the largest universities in Kenya like the University of Nairobi are still far ahead of their newly established peers while in the category of the best private universities in Kenya, Strathmore University still tops.

This means you should consider other factors like facilities, collaboration programs that a university has with partners, and even marketability of offered courses as you hunt for a university to join.
