McGill remains Canada’s top university according to the QS World University Rankings 2016/17, which were released yesterday.
McGill University is ranked 30th globally, among the almost 1,000 universities surveyed for the annual report. McGill has been ranked as the top Canadian university for eleven of the thirteen years that the QS/THE rankings have been published, apart from in 2013 and 2014.
The rankings are based on several factors including academic reputation, student-to-faculty ratio, citations per faculty, and the ratio of international faculty and international students.
“We’re proud that McGill remains Canada’s top university in the QS World University Rankings,” says Chris Manfredi, the Provost of McGill University. “Amidst growing global competition to attract the best students, the fact that the proportion of international students is greater at McGill than at any other university in Canada attests to the university’s reputation for excellence in both research and teaching.”
