The Times Higher Education report ranked U of T 22nd (out of 980) worldwide and first in Canada for the seventh year in a row – placing it in the top 25 globally in seven of eight subjects, including arts and humanities, computer science and life sciences.
“We are extremely proud that the University of Toronto has once again been recognized in the top tier of the world’s best public and private universities – that is truly a remarkable achievement,” says U of T president Meric Gertler. “These results demonstrate our world-class performance in teaching and the global impact of our research.”
The QS World University Rankings placed U of T 15th worldwide in academic reputation – one of the reasons the university attracts many top students and faculty. In the National Taiwan University Ranking, U of T’s research excellence and impact helped make it the top-ranked public university, followed by the University of Oxford in England.
