The University of Alberta has something new to boast about.

The Times Higher Education recently unveiled its 2020 World Reputation Rankings, and Alberta’s own UofA found itself ranking among the top 150 universities across the globe.

Technically, UofA landed in the 126-150 margin, tying with institutions like Stockholm University, Vanderbilt University, University of Notre Dame, as well as fellow Canadian schools the University of Montreal, McMaster University, and the University of Waterloo.

These four post-secondary schools found themselves ranking fourth through seventh collectively when looking at Canadian Universities that made the world ranking, with the University of Toronto coming in first place for Canada and 20th in the world, followed by the University of British Columbia (38th in the world) and McGill University (40th in the world).

UofA’s neighbouring school the University of Calgary, unfortunately, did not make this year’s list.

According to the World University Rankings, UofA has 31,919 full-time students, a 21 to 1 student to staff ratio, a 55 to 45 female to male ratio, with 26% of its student body being made up of international students.
