Lowest Ranked University in the World

So you’ve heard of the Best and the Worst, but now it’s time for the Bottom — the lowest ranked university in the world.

While there are top ranked institutions in the world, there are also lowest ranked universities in the world. Ranking universities in academics is based on how outstanding teaching and research methods are at various institutions.

World University Rankings

The last thing you want to do as an international student is spend your or your family’s hard-earned savings on tuition at a school in Canada that’s simply not worth it. Yes, there are some world-class campuses in the world, and a lot of very good schools. But there’s also some schools that you might be best to avoid. They might be average in terms of the education they offer but with high tuition costs. Or they might simply be very low-ranked colleges or universities where international students still have to pay thousands of dollars in tuition fees that may not be the best investment in their future.

So, let’s find out what the Worst Value Post-Secondary Schools are! Keep in mind that first is worst in our rankings. So, we’ll start at the 10th worst school in terms of value of education and work our way down to the worst at number 1. Ready?

Before we give you our worst 10 deals, we should point out that our baseline data to see what kind of value a degree from these universities offers, is the University of Alberta in Edmonton with a QS World ranking of 113 which places it near the top schools in Canada but not as high as schools like University of Toronto and UBC, or McGill and Waterloo. U of Alberta is also not quite as expensive as Canada’s top tier schools, so it’s a good comparison to see the value of a degree from other lower-ranked universities in the country.

UK University Ranking

Which universities are the very best in the UK? Which universities are on the rise, and which ones are on the decline? Which institutions are most popular with international students, and which ones are at the forefront of research? The Times Higher Education rankings are placed annually by The Times newspaper, which includes both national and global rankings for universities.

This ranking is based on five main subjects: Student satisfaction, research quality, research intensity, entrance qualifications and graduate prospects. The data has been gathered from the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), the official research body of the UK government. They collect data from universities across England to find out how well each university is performing.

The Lowest Ranked Universities in the World

University rankings are getting a bit predictable, especially at the top. The top university is either in California or Cambridge, Massachusetts (or once in another Cambridge somewhere). The top twenty will be nearly all US places with a few British. Some of the established rankers do try to liven things up a bit: Nanyang Technological University in the top twenty, Middle East Technical University in the top hundred, but that does not do much to relieve the tedium.

So I thought it might be interesting to find the lowest ranked universities in the world. The trouble is most rankings do not rank many institutions so the best place to look is Webometrics which tries to rank all the universities on the planet. Here are the 22 institutions ranked 23,892 by Webometrics which means they have no Presence, no Impact, no Openness and not one Google Scholar Citation. Whether their existence goes beyond a website to include buildings and people I’ll leave for you to find out.
