The KNUST achieved the highest score of 93.1 in the world, showing its excellence in all aspects of quality education.
The SDG 4 – Quality Education category measures universities’ contributions to early years and lifelong learning, research, and their commitment to inclusive education.
This year, 1,304 universities from 109 countries/regions participated in the category.
The KNUST improved significantly from its 2022 ranking, where it was ranked first in Africa and 14th in the world for SDG-4.
