Montreal's McGill University has claimed the 27th spot in a new global university ranking. It's the second-highest showing for a Canadian school, behind only the University of Toronto at number 24.
The international top spots in the latest list from the Center for World University Rankings (CWUR) went to the usual contenders: Harvard, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Stanford, the University of Cambridge and the University of Oxford.
The next highest-ranked Montreal university is the Université de Montréal at number 120.
It's followed by Concordia at number 586 and the Université de Québec à Montréal (UQAM) at number 617.
The other two Canadian universities in the global top 100 are the University of British Columbia (48) and the University of Alberta (81).
According to a press release, "the Center for World University Rankings (CWUR) grades universities on four factors without relying on surveys and university data submissions: quality of education (25%), alumni employment (25%), quality of faculty (10%), and research performance (40%)."
