Unirank Reveals the Best Universities in Kenya

UniRank is an international higher education directory and search engine that helps determine the top universities in Kenya. It is used to rank and classify higher education institutions all around the world. 


This system aims to assess higher education institutions on the quality of education, student satisfaction, equality, inclusion, facilities available and alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals( SDGs).

The information is based on valid, unbiased and non-influenceable Web metrics. The data has been independently sourced and not keyed in by the institutions to nullify all forms of bias.

The UniRank system has released its results for the 2023 ranking of higher education institutions and the University of Nairobi (UoN) tops the list. 

Among the top five institutions are; Kenyatta University (second), Strathmore University (third), United States International University Africa (fourth) and Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (fifth).

UniRank managed to assess 63 higher education institutions in Kenya. The 63 are those that are chartered, licenced and accredited by the Kenyan Higher Education-related Organization. They have to offer a 3-year degree on postgraduate masters, or a doctoral degree. They also have to offer most courses in a traditional and non-distance education format.
