U of T Named Among World’s Top 25 Universities

Canada has had one helluva spring.

In March, fashion bible Vogue put Toronto on the culinary map after declaring The Big Smoke is a foodie hotspot, and in April one Canadian city was named one of the least snobby in the world.

Now, it’s been announced that one Canadian university has been ranked as one of the best in the world — giving Canadians even more bragging rights.

The University of Toronto ranked 23rd in the world on the annual Times Higher Education World Reputation Ranking. The prestigious ranking lists the best universities based on their core missions.

U of T moved up one rank this year based on the school’s teaching and research. The University of British Columbia was the next Canadian university to rank, placing 37th this year, with McGill following at 39th.

This year’s ranking was based on a survey of more than 10,000 top scholars from around the world. Each academic was asked to name up to 15 universities that they believe are the best for research and teaching in their discipline. Votes for institutions based on research prowess were given twice the weight of those for teaching.

So, for the young millennials still unable to choose between all the great universities in Canada, might we point you in the direction of U of T?

There’s no better place to spend four years.
