Queen's renews participation in university rankings

April 29, 2011

Queen's University will participate in this year's round of international and domestic university rankings, recognizing that rankings play a valued role in undergraduate and graduate student recruitment, and often provide the only institutional profile available to foreign students prior to applying. Last year, Queen's decided not to provide information to the Times Higher Education ranking due to concerns about its methodology. As a result, the institution was not included in the top 200 list. The Times has since revised its methodology. Queen's will submit data to the 3 primary global ranking exercises: Times, QS World University, and the Academic Review of World Universities, formerly known as the Shanghai rankings. The university will continue have a presence in Maclean's and Research Infosource projects, and will also participate in the Globe and Mail's Canadian University Report. Queen's News Centre
