ARWU ranks about 1,800 universities every year, but only the best 1,000 universities are published.
On the Canadian list, U of T is closely followed by the University of British Columbia at number two and McGill University and McMaster University are tied for third and fourth place.
Ryerson University comes in last on the list, tied with Lakehead University at number 28.
On the worldwide list, U of T is the only Canadian university in the top 30 at number 24.
Eight out of the top 10 schools are in the U.S., with Harvard University taking the top spot for the 17th year.
Here is ARWU's ranking of the top 30 universities in the world.
ARWU ranks schools based on six factors: the number of alumni and staff winning Nobel Prizes and Fields Medals, the number of articles published in journals of nature and science, the number of highly-cited researchers and the number of articles indexed in Science Citation Index - Expanded and Social Sciences Citation Index produced by Web of Science Group, and per capita performance.
