Toronto has been sweeping up the accolades lately. From our growing place in pop culture to our world-class hospitals, the 6ix is quickly becoming a vital hub of the modern world, and we're just getting started. A 2020 U.S. News Best Global Universities study recently ranked the University of Toronto as the 18th best university in the world, a stunning achievement for the city’s reputation for higher learning.
The prestigious ranking is made via a thorough vetting process that evaluates several factors while determining which universities stand apart. "These institutions from the U.S. and more than 80 other countries have been ranked based on 13 indicators that measure their academic research performance and their global and regional reputations."
"Students can use these rankings to explore the higher education options that exist beyond their own countries' borders and to compare key aspects of schools' research missions. These are the world's top 1,500 universities,” reads a statement on the process on US News’s website.
U of T was outranked entirely by U.S. schools with Harvard taking the top of the list and Massachusetts Institute of Technology taking second place.
However, it is worth noting that U of T does rank number one in Canada with an overall global score of 83.1. The school is also ranked number 4 in the world for Clinical Medicine and number 6 for Arts and Humanities.
Toronto was recently ranked the 15th best city in the world for hospitals. Toronto was awarded a total score of 94.74 out of 100 in its ranking.
These results showing that Toronto isn't only known for its good education, but also for its hospital facilities.
According to a Medbelle study it looks “at the best hospitals and medical schools to create a shortlist of the world’s top hospital cities. Then, we split the factors."
The world-class achievements in medicine and education by the city will hopefully ease the pains of the cost of living for those who continue to live in the ever-growing city.
