When it comes to the world's best universities for 2021-2022, Canada is looking pretty impressive!

To create the top 2000 ranking, the CWUR considered several factors, including quality of education, alumni employment, research performance and the quality of faculty.

While 42 Canadian post-secondary institutions made the top 2000 list, it was just four universities that ranked among the best 100 in the world.

Joining schools like Harvard University, Stanford University and the University of Cambridge in the top 25 was the University of Toronto, with an impressive score of 87.5 out of a possible 100.

McGill University was also ranked incredibly highly in 27th place, with a score of 87 out of 100.

The University of British Columbia and the University of Alberta came in 48th and 81st place respectively, both scoring over 82 points overall in the university ranking.

While Toronto, McGill and UBC have ranked among the top 100 global universities previously, it's a jump for Alberta, which ranked 138th place globally earlier this year.
