uOttawa makes world’s top 200 most international universities

Posted on Thursday, January 14, 2016

The University of Ottawa has established itself among the world's top international universities, according to the latest Times Higher Education World Ranking. The University ranks 179 in the THE top 200 list of the most international universities. Only 13 Canadian universities made the top 200 this year.

"We are delighted with this most recent ranking, which reflects our efforts as a community. The University of Ottawa's growing international reputation can be attributed to the partnerships we have nurtured with professors, researchers and institutions abroad. We will continue to strengthen these bonds and to strive towards creating an even more multicultural campus, open to the world," said University of Ottawa President Allan Rock.

International outlook helps attract high calibre professors, researchers and students. Diversity in the student body and the faculty, as well as international collaborations between institutions and researchers, are key signs of an institution focused on internationalization. This is reflected in the University's Destination 2020 strategic plan, which calls for specific targets to attract more international students, institutional collaborations and an overall openness to multiculturalism and to the world.

Times Higher Education used an international outlook indicator to create its list, evaluating the top 800 institutions from its overall ranking.
