U of T is top Canadian school in latest world rankings

The University of Toronto has once again been ranked the best school in Canada in the Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings. Placed at 23 in the world, that puts well ahead of its closest national competition in the form of the University of British Columbia, which was ranked 37th overall. Rounding out the top three from Canada was McGill in the 39th spot.

Three universities in the top 40 globally is quite good given that Canadian schools have less resources to work with than many of their private American counterparts, but it is remarkable to see just how dominant U.S. schools are in rankings of this type. The top three spots went to Harvard, MIT, and Stanford University.

While U of T takes top spot in these rankings, it did take a bit of a tumble compared to last year, when it occupied the 16th spot. Closer to home, the most recent rankings from Maclean's Magazine has the school ranked second behind McGill, though it consistently ranks better in international surveys of this type.
