The University of Ottawa remains among the top universities in Canada, according to two recent rankings published this week.

Each fall Maclean’s, the well-known public affairs magazine, publishes a detailed cross-Canada university ranking report, and for 2016 the University of Ottawa climbed up to rank 8 among the medical/doctoral category which regroups universities offering a broad range of PhD programs, research and medical schools.

Maclean’s survey lists uOttawa as the top Canadian university for student services and second in the country for scholarships and bursaries, as well as in the medical/sciences grants category, which measures the average size and number of peer-adjudicated research grants.
