Studying in Africa is a unique experience, probably one of a kind, wherein the students get the chance to not only explore a diverse culture, but also a geographical masterpiece, which is not bereft of picturesque locations. In the QS world university rankings, the below-mentioned institutions made it to the list, lets’ have a look:
University of Cape Town
The oldest university in South Africa, this institution tops the list of the Great Universities in Africa. It has consistently made it to the top 200 in the list of top ranked institutions globally. As an incentive for the students, who are more often than not, busy with their everyday schedule, the university offers spectacular views while sitting on the slopes of Devil’s Peak.
Talking of the global rankings, it notched up its standards and rose to jointly claim the 361st spot in the world. Not far, rather within 50 kilometers from Cape Town, this second on the list of African Great Universities is something to be looked forward to for students.
University of Witwatersrand
Often referred to as Wits as a jargon, it was ranked 364th globally. Again, South Africa is the nation to be able to claim as the host to its presence. Of the total number of 33,700 students that brace the classrooms, 2.600 happen to be international.
The American University in Cairo
Fourth in the list of Great Universities in Africa, is the American University,that happens to be based in Egypt. This brand of African education occupies the 395th spot (jointly) in the world. QS has in fact, gone ahead and ranked the American University 5th in its native Africa-centered list.
In the Arab region, the Cairo University is ranked 10TH in the list of the best institutions. But don’t be mistaken by the name, the university is based 20kms southwest of Nile from Cairo.
University of Johannesburg
This is a unique name for itself in the field of education. As recently as 2005, the situation in South Africa required for a number of institutions to be coupled under the same umbrella. From this necessity arose the existence of the University of Johannesburg. It is the youngest name, therefore on the list of the best places to study in Africa. Internationally, it is ranked in the range of 601-605.
Among other in the list and is the order of their rankings were the University of Pretoria, Ain Shams University and the University of Kwazulu-Natal.
