Canada’s Universities Get Graded

Canada's Universities Get Graded

How did your University rank?

The student voice has been heard. Over 35,000 of Canada’s undergraduate students from 54 Canadian universities were asked to give their schools a grade; and personality counts.

Students got a chance to factor in their school’s “personality” with questions like:

  • Are the schools undergrad-focused or researched-inclined?
  • Does your university have a diverse or homogenous student body?
  • Academically, is your university nurturing and supportive, or encouraging of independence?
  • Is your university innovative/open or cautious to new approaches and programs?

Schools were ranked and classed according to enrollment size as large (enrollment of 22,000+), medium (enrolment 12,000 – 22,000), small (enrolment 4,000 – 12,000) and very small (enrolment less than 4,000).

According to the results, The University of Western Ontario and McGill University were heads of the class among the large universities. While The University of Guelph and Queen’s University received top grades among the medium sized schools. Grant MacEwan University and Mount Royal University were tops among small schools, with Bishop’s University and Redeemer University being ranked the top very small schools.
