The University of Calgary and the University of Alberta both rank among the top 10 universities in Canada.

That is according to the Academic Ranking of World Universities, an annual report of the best universities in the world put out by Shanghai Ranking Consultancy.

U of A took the 5th spot in Canada, while U of C took the 9th spot. The top three universities in the country are the University of Toronto (number one), followed by the University of British Columbia, and McGill University.

The two schools failed to break the top 100 globally, however.

In case you’re wondering, the top universities in the world are American Ivy League schools, with Harvard taking the top spot, followed by Stanford.
