McGill rose to 42nd in the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2020, published yesterday.

Globally, the USA once again has 60 universities in the top 200, 10 of which comes from the state of California alone. IIT Ropar and IIT Indore are also smaller institutions, which mean that they have a better student/staff ratio which also helps improve their rankings tally.

"Our connections with peer academics and other universities gives strength to our world class positioning".

The ranking is based on a number of factors, including global outlook, teaching and industry income. Six universities are included in this year's top 500 in THE World University Rankings 2020, a step-up in comparison to last year's five universities.

Nearly 1,400 universities in 92 countries were ranked based on their teaching and learning environment (30 percent); research volume, income and reputation (30 percent); citations and research influence (30 percent); worldwide outlook of staff, students and research (7.5 percent); and industry income and knowledge transfer (2.5 percent).

Overall, the University of Toronto has a score of 85.5 out of 100. In all 10 Indian Universities which participated for the time made it to the global ranking list of 1,300 universities.

In the top 20, most schools are located in either the US or the UK. The only university in the top 20 that isn't in Canada, the USA or the United Kingdom is in Switzerland.

Brunel's world-class research received particular praise, with the number and quality of "Citations" showing a marked year-on-year improvement.

Canada's lowest ranked shcool is the University of Lethbridge which comes in at 1001+ on the list.

Unfortunately, two Canadian schools actually fell out of the top 200 for this year's ranking.

Elsewhere in New Zealand, the University of Otago remained in the 201-250 bracket and the University of Canterbury stayed at 301-350.

Auckland University vice-chancellor Stuart McCutcheon said in a statement he is happy with the result that sees the institution come in ahead of all other New Zealand universities.
