THE releases 2016-17 World University Rankings

September 23, 2016

Times Higher Education has released its 2016-17 World University Rankings and 26 Canadian institutions have made the list. The Canadian Press reports that this year’s rankings show a drop in rankings for each of Canada’s three highest-ranked universities, combined with a sharp increase in the rankings for China’s top institutions. “Canada will have to watch out for Asia’s continuing ascent,” commented THE Editor Phil Baty, who added that “Canada’s success cannot be guaranteed in the long-term while more of Asia’s leading universities soar to join the world elite.” This year also saw the University of Windsor feature in the THE rankings for the first time.
