The University of Toronto, University of British Columbia and McGill University are once again the top three Canadian schools in an international comparison. This time it’s the Times Higher Education‘s 2013-14 World University Rankings. Those same three are gold, silver and bronze in the Medical Doctoral category of the Maclean’s 2014 Rankings and on the other two global lists, QS and ARWU.

Once again, 19 Canadian universities are on Times’ list. The rankings are based on 13 performance indicators including the learning environment, research volume and citations.
