Université de Montréal placed 85th in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, which evaluates 1,400 of the approximately 19,000 universities around the world.
What do Oxford, Harvard, the Sorbonne, UBC, University of Tokyo and Université de Montréal (UdeM) have in common? They’re all included among the top 100 universities in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings. This year, Université de Montréal placed 85th in this highly respected ranking, which evaluates 1,400 of the approximately 19,000 universities around the world.
The ranking is based on a number of indicators such as the quality of research, international appeal and reputation of each institution. “I'm especially proud of this achievement, which is a testament to the strong leadership of our increasingly highly cited researchers and to the growing reputation of our institution around the world,” said Université de Montréal rector Guy Breton. “I'd like to thank the professors, researchers, staff and students who make up our uniquely exceptional university community.”
Aside from this particular Times Higher Education ranking, UdeM also placed seventh on the same organization's University Impact Rankings, which assess universities based on how well they meet the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
