### Submit Your Data for the 2024 Sub-Saharan Africa University Rankings Now

The data portal for the Times Higher Education Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) University Rankings 2024 is now accessible for institutions throughout the region to participate in the ranking process.

Universities interested in being ranked can now submit their data for consideration in the upcoming edition. The portal will remain active for two months, closing on 30 March.

Participation in data submission is open to all universities in the region that offer undergraduate programs. While there are no costs associated with participation, universities are required to submit their data via the portal and administer a student survey to their enrolled students. It is important to note that only universities from which a minimum of 50 valid survey responses are received will be eligible for ranking.

Detailed instructions on how to submit institutional data can be found on the portal. Following their submissions, universities may receive communication for data verification purposes.

While the exact publication date for the rankings has not been finalized, it is anticipated to be towards the end of 2024.

These rankings have been specifically crafted to address the unique challenges encountered by higher education institutions in sub-Saharan Africa. This initiative was launched by a collaboration of African and international higher education entities and corporations.

In a recent update, new metrics focusing on leadership, ethics, and African heritage have been incorporated into the ranking methodology. Consequently, adjustments have been made to the overall structure of the ranking criteria.

The inaugural edition of the ranking, released last June, involved data collection from a total of 121 universities. Apart from data provided directly by universities and feedback gathered from current students through the survey, bibliometric data from our partner Elsevier is also utilized in the ranking assessment.

This year, the student survey will be distributed in four languages: English, French, Swahili, and Portuguese.
