This fall Maclean’s will release our 25th annual ranking of Canadian universities. To celebrate, we’re adding a few new metrics to help make the rankings even more precise.
We’ve always asked academics, employers and guidance counsellors which universities they think are best. This year, we’re adding students to the mix.
Universities may talk a good game, but students are the ones with the inside scoop on how policy actually plays out in the classroom. We want to know about the quality of students’ interactions with professors and whether students’ education has contributed to their ability to think critically and solve problems.
We’re also including a number of topical issues in the survey that won’t be included in the rankings, but may form stories. The survey will try to measure how common unpaid internships are, the extent of sexual assault on campus, and how much debt young people have. While we won’t be ranking colleges, the survey is open to college students, as well as university students.
If you complete the survey, you can enter a contest to win $1,000 or an iPad Mini 3. Here’s the link:
