As of this year’s QS World University Rankings, U of T is no longer the top Canadian university. That honour now belongs to Montreal’s McGill University.
Last year, U of T was ranked the twentieth best university in the world, making it the top Canadian university in the world. However, this year U of T has taken a sharp decline of 14 spots, falling to number 34 in the world.
McGill University was ranked thirty-ninth in the world in 2014– 2015. This year, it has risen 15 spots, making it to number 21.
Important factors that affected a university’s score in the rankings were academic reputation, employer reputation, international student and faculty ratio as well as student-to-faculty ratio.
