This research was a correlation study of value system and standard of university education in third generation universities in South-South geopolitical zone. It sought to answer five research questions which were derived from the five specific purposes of the study. Five research hypotheses were also formulated and tested. A sample of 200 students were randomly drawn from the population of 7620 first year and final year undergraduates of the Faculties of Education of the University of Uyo and the Rivers state University of Science and Technology, Port Harcourt. The instrument consisted of a Value Measurement Inventory (VMI) and the school record. The data was analysed using mean, Pearson Product correlation coefficient and ttest. The findings indicated a significant and positive relationship between the value system of the undergraduates and the standard of university education.
