Shakeups in the Times Higher Ed university rankings

October 8, 2009

The UK Times Higher Education-QS World University Rankings, released yesterday, rank the top 200 universities worldwide based on academic peer review, research excellence, faculty ratios and the opinions of graduate recruiters. Harvard remains in the top spot, but most American institutions dropped a place or two as Asian and UK institutions rose. 6 Canadian universities gained ground this year: McGill rose to 18th, uToronto to 29th, uAlberta to 59th, uWaterloo to 113th, uCalgary to 149th, and UWO to 151st.  Unfortunately, 6 other Canadian universities fell in the rankings, including UBC, uMontreal, Queen's, McMaster, SFU, and Dalhousie.  THE 2009 Rankings  |  Chronicle of Higher Education  |  National Post KW Record  |  Hamilton Spectator  |  Globe & Mail
