The 2024 WUR evaluated 2,671 entries from 1,906 universities in 108 countries and regions using the revised 3.0 methodology. The institutions were evaluated based on their teaching, research environment, research quality, industry, and international viewpoint.

The ranking process included an examination of over 134 million citations from 16.5 million academic papers, as well as survey responses from 68,402 researchers worldwide. A total of 411,789 data points were collected from the 2,673 institutions that provided data.

In response, Vice-Chancellor Professor Babatunde Kehinde congratulated the entire University community on this inclusive success and advocated for further collaboration in the future. 

The Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Ogun state, was established on January 1, 1988, by the Federal Government. 

It is situated on a 10,000-hectare campus on the Abeokuta-Ibadan road in the northeastern section of the city, next to the Ogun-Oshun River Basin Development Authority.
