The 2019 webomentrics ranking of world universities as released via www.webometrics.info on the 31st of July, 2019, Adekunle Ajasin University is No.9 in Nigeria, No. 81 in Africa and 3048 out of over 28,000 institutions ranked globally.

Among the Nigerian universities rated in this year's outing, the University of Ibadan topped the list while Adekunle Ajasin University attained the ninth position, coming after seven Federal Universities and  the privately owned Convenant University.

By the rating, AAUA is given out as the Best State University in Nigeria, the third time to be so decorated within the space of six years, beating several older federal and state universities. 

The University had emerged as the Best State University in Nigeria in April 2014. That was conferred on it by the United States (US) Transparency International Standards (USTIS). It ranked it as the best in the preliminary results from the USTIS 2013 Coordinated Nigeria Schools’ Survey - the body’s school ranking initiative. 

The webometrics rating, which began in 2004, is published yearly by the Cybermetrics Lab, a research group of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) located in Madrid, premised on the volume of the Web contents, visibility and impact of the web publications according to the number of external site citations received. It is aimed at improving the academic outputs and research institutions, and to promote the open access publication of scientific results.
