The University of Toronto continues to take top marks in the annual QS World University Rankings.
According to the QS World University Rankings, U of T took the first place ranking in Canada, and 31st place in the world.
The annual ranking reported that U of T excels in geography, nursing, sports-related subjects, anatomy, and physiology. The ranking also found that U of T graduates are also viewed favourably by employers.
In the 2018 ranking, U of T received a very high academic reputation, with a score of 99.7. However, the university still trails three points behind major Ivy League institutions like Harvard, MIT, and Stanford who all received 100 for their academic reputations.
While being ranked 31st in the world is an impressive accolade, U of T’s world ranking has dropped in recent years.
In 2012, U of T was ranked as the 19th top university in the world, followed by the 17th in 2014. However, by 2015, it had dropped three spots to 20th and then to 34th in 2016. The university is only just beginning to descend into higher ranks year after year.
Among the other Canadian universities in this year’s top 100 list are McGill University (32), the University of British Columbia (51), and the University of Alberta (90). Other Ontario universities include McMaster University (140), University of Waterloo (152), Western (210), and Queen’s (224).
