McGill takes 12th spot in global ranking

McGill, arts buildingAs the Globe & Mail reports, McGill University has just been ranked on place 12 among the world’s top 200 universities just published today by the London Times. It is further ranked first on the Canadian level. My former university, RWTH Aachen, now “elite university”, at least made it to place 203-304. (I think they really have to do something about their image.)

The study put emphasis on “science programs, the strong contingent of international students and faculty, student/faculty ratios, and publications by faculty and graduate researchers”. I am proud to have contributed at least some few of those publications. Hopefully more to come… And I agree – McGill is a great place to be!
