McGill has maintained its ranking of 21 in the QS World University Rankings, it was announced earlier today in London, England.
This is the 11th year in a row that Quacquarelli Symonds has ranked McGill in the Top 25 of the world’s universities. McGill is Canada’s second-ranked university in this year’s QS standings, almost tied with the University of Toronto, which ranks 20th.
“It is to the McGill community’s great credit that we are not only holding our own, but doing so in a difficult financial climate,” said Principal Suzanne Fortier. “Rankings are not an exact science, and different methodologies measure different things. The value, I think, is in the cumulative view of an institution over time. Eleven years in the QS Top 25 is a big part of that long view, and I am proud of McGill’s consistency in maintaining standards of excellence.”
Other rankings, including the Times Higher Education and Maclean’s Magazine, will be made public in the coming weeks.
