McGill is tied for 27th best university in the world, according to the eighteenth edition of the QS World University Rankings. The report was released today by global higher education analysts QS Quacquarelli Symonds.

The strong showing continues an upward trend for the University. This marks the second year in a row that McGill rose four spots in the QS rankings. Just two years ago, the University was rated 35th in the same rankings.

To compile its rankings, QS evaluates universities using six indicators. On top of its overall rank, McGill improved in four of the six indicators, including Faculty Citations, Student/Faculty ratio, International Faculty ratio and International Student ratio.

The University maintained its position in Academic Reputation and, in the only area it dropped, McGill slipped just one position in International Student ratio. QS evaluated over 1,600 institutions for its final list of 1,300 – the largest such ranking ever issued by QS.

Earlier this year, McGill earned top marks in the QS World University Rankings by Subject, with 32 subjects rated in the top 50 worldwide, including three in the top 10.
