NOTE: just provides university and college web-rankings based on their popularity.  It does not by any means rank  institutions or their programmes by taking into consideration of education level. It is not an academic ranking tool and should thus not be used as reference to the academic performance of an institutions.

One thing however higher institutions of learning should be aware of is that as much as web rankings cannot be used as a basis of academic performance many potential students still depend on web presence to select which university or college to join. Therefore, a university’s web performance is essential.
