Below are the Top 20 Universities in Africa according to Edurank
1. University of Cape Town
* The University of Cape Town is among the institutions that don’t provide data on acceptance rates. This might happen because a university has programs where applicants only need to meet admission requirements to enroll and don’t necessarily compete with others.
We estimate the above acceptance rate based on admission statistics of closely ranked nearby universities with similar research profiles that do publish such data.
