4 Canadian universities make THE Top 100 under 50 ranking

June 24, 2013

Simon Fraser University, the University of Guelph, the University of Victoria and the University of Calgary have been recognized by Times Higher Education as being among the world’s top 100 universities under 50 years old. A “100 Under 50” ranking means that the institution shows great potential for the future. THE uses the same 13 indicators as those it uses for its World University Rankings (published in March), but re-calibrates them to reflect the special characteristics of younger universities, “giving less weight to subjective indicators of academic reputation.” uVic took the 20th spot this year, uCalgary was awarded number 23, SFU sits at number 26, and UoGuelph is ranked number 55. Times Higher Education
