UNIVERSITIES IN CANADA

Canada has a well-established position among the world’s leading study destinations; of those, the most popular Canadian provinces were Ontario, British Columbia and Quebec, which between them are home to many of the top universities in Canada.

For those looking to study at an elite university in one of the world’s most developed nations, applying to study in Canada can be an attractive option. A total of 26 universities in Canada feature in the QS World University Rankings® 2014/15, of which three are in the world’s top 50 and 10 make the world’s top 200 – a feat matched only by a handful of other nations. The two highest Canadian entries are the University of Toronto (20th) and McGill University (21st), located in Toronto and Montréal, the two largest cities in Canada. Also within the global top 200 are the University of British Columbia, Université de Montréal, University of Alberta, McMaster University, University of Waterloo, University of Calgary, Queen’s University, and Western University.
