The University of Toronto has top 10 international ranking in six subjects, says the independent QS World University Rankings by Subject

In the report released today, U of T ranked in the top 10 globally in nursing (6th), sports-related subjects (6th), anatomy & physiology (8th), geography (9th), computer science (10th) and education (10th). Medicine, anthropology and religious studies just missed the top 10 list, landing in 11th place.

Among Canadian universities, U of T was first in all five of the broad subject areas and first in 32 of the 43 subjects in which the university was ranked by Quacquarelli Symonds.

Globally, the results place the University of Toronto among the world’s elite institutions in all five subject areas and in 43 of the 46 subjects surveyed. The university scored even higher when public higher education institutions alone were counted in the subject areas ranked.

The news comes one day after Times Higher Education (THE) placed U of T in a group of 53 institutions that “have the greatest chance of catching up with and surpassing the likes of Oxbridge and the Ivy League.” THE editors cited U of T’s clinical ranking as a primary reason for adding it to a list of “international powerhouse institutions.”
