  • Universities in Canada Among the Best in the World

    Multiple assessments of institutions of higher learning around the globe have reached the same conclusion – Canada has several of the best universities in the world!


    The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2015-2016 considered the University of Toronto to be the 19th top university in the world, plus it ranked the University of British Columbia #34; rated McGill University #38; and declared Canada’s McMaster University tied with Georgetown University (USA) as the 94th best university on the planet. Also receiving respectable ratings were the University of Montreal which tied for #113 with Purdue University (USA) and Pierre and Marie Curie University (France); the University of Alberta #137; and the University of Waterloo which was ranked #179 in the world.


    According to the QS World University Rankings 2015/2016, McGill University is the 24th best university on Earth; the University of Toronto is #34; the University of British Columbia is #50; and the University of Alberta is the #96 top institution of higher education in the world. Other Canadian universities that received high marks in this evaluation were the University of Montreal #115; McMaster University #149; the University of Waterloo #152; and the University of Western Ontario at #192.


    In the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) 2015, several universities in Canada were included among the world’s top 100 institutions of higher education. For example, the University of Toronto was ranked in 25th place; the University of British Columbia came in 40th place; McGill University was in 64th place; and McMaster University came in 96th place out of the thousands of colleges and universities around the globe.


    One of the many advantages of being issued a Permanent Resident Visa to Canada is having access to the highly-rated Canadian education system. While this article focuses on Canada’s excellent institutions of higher education, it should be noted that Canadian primary and secondary schools, as well as its trade/vocational schools and community colleges, are also known for the high quality instruction and other benefits they provide their students.


    Many foreign nationals want to immigrate to Canada so they can receive a world-class Canadian education and enhance their career options (among other reasons). This might include earning a first university degree (e.g., Bachelor’s Degree) or, perhaps, acquiring a graduate degree (e.g., Master’s Degree, PhD, MD, etc.) in Canada. In other cases, skilled foreign workers who immigrate to Canada have already obtained a good education, but they want their children to have the chance to attend a highly-rated Canadian educational institution and then be able to legally work in Canada using that education.


    Whatever the motivation, being granted a Permanent Resident Visa to Canada offers many great educational, career and other opportunities for a better life. If you want to immigrate to Canada and would like to learn more, click here!
