McGill remains among the world’s top 45 Universities, according to the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2022. This makes 12 consecutive years that the University has made THE’s global Top 45, a testament to both McGill’s excellence and consistency.

The results of the THE rankings were published online Wednesday and include a record 1,662 colleges and universities from 99 different countries and regions.

For the sixth consecutive year, the University of Oxford topped the rankings, followed by Harvard, Caltech, and Stanford. MIT and Cambridge tied for fifth.

Among the most influential lists in the world, THE’s rankings evaluates colleges and universities based on 13 key performance indicators grouped into five thematic areas:

  • Teaching (the learning environment)
  • Research (volume, income and reputation)
  • Citations (research influence)
  • Industry income (knowledge transfer)
  • International outlook (staff, students and research)

Data analyzed to create the rankings includes 108 million citations from 14.4 million research publications, as well as a survey of 22,000 academics around the world.

Of the seven Canadian universities in THE’s Top 200, McGill ranked second in International outlook; second in Teaching; and third in Research.

McGill ranked eighth among North American public universities.

In August, the University made a significant jump up ShanghaiRanking Consultancy’s Academic Ranking of World Universities, moving from 78th to 67th.
