June 13, 2017

QS Top Universities has released its QS World University Rankings 2018, and four Canadian institutions have made the top 100. The University of Toronto (#31) and McGill University (#32) were in the top 50, with the University of British Columbia (#51) coming in narrowly afterwards. The University of Alberta was tied for #90 with Korea University. Institutions are ranked on six performance indicators: academic reputation, employer reputation, faculty/student ratio, citations per faculty, international faculty ratio, and international student ratio. QS states that one trend of note this year is the continued improvement of universities in areas of the world that have not historically been included in the world rankings, such as Argentina and Brazil.
