UBC Ranked #2 Among Canadian Universities



In the midst of UBC‘s leadership crisis, some good news: the university has ranked 2nd in Canada, after University of Toronto, and 40th worldwide in an annual academic ranking of world universities conducted by Shanghai Jiao Tong University. The index is weighted almost entirely by the number of high profile academics, citations in hard science journals and Nobel Prize wins (of which UBC faculty and alumni have won seven)—it’s a good barometer of R&D spending and hard research at big institutions. A little further down the list, Simon Fraser University is ranked 10th in Canada and University of Victoria is ranked 14th.
