The University of Toronto, which has campuses in Mississauga, Toronto and Scarborough, has ranked among the top 20 universities in the world.
The university places 18th in the world in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, said the University of Toronto in a press release.
This is the fourth year in a row that U of T has held the 18th spot.
The ranking measures universities’ performance based on 13 indicators including research, citations and teaching. The university’s international outlook, using metrics such as the ratio of international to domestic students, and research income from industry is also considered.
U of T’s highest ranking came in the research category, where it placed 12th in the world.
“This latest ranking confirms again the University of Toronto’s world leadership across key aspects of our mission – from research impact and teaching excellence to fostering a global outlook,” said U of T President Meric Gertler. “Our consistent performance in these and other global rankings reflects the outstanding talent, creativity and drive of U of T scholars across a vast array of disciplines.
“Students, faculty, staff and librarians across our three campuses can be very proud of this performance, which places us among the top post-secondary institutions in the world.”
U of T is the only Canadian university in the top 20. The top three universities are Oxford in England, followed by Harvard in the U.S. and the University of Cambridge also in England.
Compared to other public schools, U of T ranked eighth globally and second in North America – behind only the University of California, Berkeley.
The rankings were released during the Times Higher Education World Academic Summit in New York this week.
Other Canadian universities in the top 100 included: the University of British Columbia (40th), McGill University (46th) and McMaster University (85th).
