U of T’s First-Rate Rankings

U of T's First-Rate Rankings

Autumn is university rankings season, and this year U of T laid claim to top-30 places on four of the most prestigious of these rankings, shown here. In three of the four, U of T was the highest ranked university in Canada. QS World University Rankings also evaluates universities in 26 specific subject areas. U of T earned a top-20 ranking in most of them, and placed among the top 10 in English, modern languages, philosophy, computer science and statistics.

Phil Baty, editor of the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, says its list of top 200 universities represents approximately the top one per cent of higher education institutions worldwide. U of T had placed 17th in its rankings last year; however, “securing a place once again within the top 20 is an outstanding achievement,” says Baty.
