Three Canadian universities are among the top 25 schools worldwide in the newly-released 2012 Times Higher Education Reputation Rankings.
The University of Toronto ranks 16th. McGill University and the University of British Columbia are tied for 25th place. No other Canadian school is on the top 100 list.
Our universities’ reputations outshine those in most other countries, especially when our relatively smaller population is considered.
Among the top 25 (which includes two ties) fifteen are located in the United States, four are in the United Kingdom, two are in Japan, and there is one each in Singapore and Switzerland.
Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the University of Cambridge took the top three spots.
