2021 Ranking of Zambia Universities

What are Zambia’s most famous universities? Topuniversitieslist attempts to address this issue by releasing the 2021 Zambian University Ranking, which includes 50 Zambian higher education institutions that fulfill the Topuniversitieslist selection criteria:

being chartered, registered, or certified by the relevant Zambian higher education-related institution, and providing at least four-year undergraduate degrees (bachelor degrees) or postgraduate degrees (master or doctoral degrees) in a conventional, face-to-face, non-distance education style.

The Topuniversitieslist League Table and University Ranking of 50 Universities in Zambia are available to see.

Zambia is divided into ten regions, each of which is further subdivided into districts. The overwhelming majority of higher education institutions that follow the Topuniversitieslist selection criterion are found in Lusaka, Zambia’s smallest province and home to the country’s capital and most populous region. Both provinces with at least two Zambian higher education institutions matching the Topuniversitieslist placement criterion are included in the following Topuniversitieslist league tables or sub-rankings.
