204 of the schools featured in this year’s QS World University Rankings are in the US and Canada.
The US claims 177 of these universities, including 19 new entries this year – the most of any country featured in the index. As mentioned above, MIT takes the top spot in the US for the 10th year running – an incredible achievement.
MIT Provost Marty Shmidt said: “MIT is a truly interdisciplinary, collaborative, thought-provoking place that encourages experimentation and pushes you to expand your mind. I think it’s a wonderful place to call home.”
Meanwhile, Canada boasts 28 ranked universities, including Canada’s top school, the University of Toronto, ranking in 26th place.
Ksenia Meteleva recently graduated from the University of Toronto and will be starting her postgraduate studies in the Autumn term.
She said: “U of T supported me in many ways through a variety of experiential learning opportunities, insightful courses, inspiring activities of student-run organizations, diverse communities and a dynamic residential life experience; all of which ultimately helped me to master the skills and competencies I possess today.
“I really enjoyed my experience at UofT as an undergraduate student and I am happy to be transitioning to graduate school here.”
