Kenyan Universities Ranking 2019

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.

Here are the official ranking Kenyan Universities rankings  2019 (recognized universities in Kenya only):

While we cannot say that webometrics Kenyan Universities ranking is the ultimate yardstick in terms of the quality offered by our institutions, it’s still a useful indicator towards what you can expect at least in terms of information openness and web weight.

That being said, it’s not very easy to come up with the ranking of Kenyan universities from the best to the worst since they are so many dynamics involved.

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.
