U of T: Canada’s Best University

U of T sweeps first in Canada and ranks in the global top 30 in four of the world's most prestigious university rankings

U of T’s stellar research and innovation record propelled the university to a sweep of the four most prestigious university rankings in 2013. All four placed U of T first in Canada and in the top 30 globally.

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings noted that U of T was one of only eight universities (including Oxford, Cambridge and Stanford) to score in the top 30 in all six subject areas in the survey: humanities, medicine, physical sciences, social sciences, life sciences and engineering. The Times also praised U of T’s invention disclosure rate – first in Canada and third among public universities in North America – and its five Nobel laureate alumni, the most of any Canadian university.
