McGill University in Montreal was the top Canadian school in the rankings, coming in 31st. It is followed by the University of Toronto and the University of British Columbia.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is at the top of the world rankings with a perfect score.

It is followed by the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom and fellow American school Stanford University in California.

Overall, the rankings look at six different categories to give each school a score. Academic Reputation, which accounts for 40% of the score, Employer Reputation, Faculty Student Ratio, Citations per Faculty, International Faculty Ratio, and International Students Ratio.

They also gave scores for International Research Network and Employment Outcomes, but those didn’t factor into the overall score for this year.
