Griffith University has vaulted into the 201-250 band in the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2020 placing it firmly in the top 2% of global universities. "For McGill to forge ahead in the rankings against such tough opposition is a great achievement, reflecting the university's improving reputation among academics and students alike".

Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and IIT Ropar have been ranked first among the Indian institutes.

Moving up from 44th a year ago, McGill remains one of three Canadian universities among the top 50 in THE world table with strong showing in teaching, research, and worldwide outlook.

Edinburgh Napier dropped out of the top 800 universities in the world, according to the Times Higher Education (THE) guide, while Queen Margaret failed to make the top 1,000. However, for the first time since 2012, not a single Indian university made it to the top 300 list. Six universities are included in this year's top 500 in THE World University Rankings 2020, a step-up in comparison to last year's five universities.

University of Ibadan follows as the second best in the country, between 501-600, while University of Lagos (between 801-1000) is the third best in the nation. The highly regarded data provider annually publishes a list of the top national and global universities based on academic and research excellence.

However, it just needs to back these aspirations with high levels of investment - or risk declining further amid increasing global competition, especially from other parts of Asia. "It must also be stated, however, that the traditional Anglo-American powerhouses will not be displaced at the top of our rankings easily".

Occupying the rest of the Top 10 spots were Stanford University with 94.3 points; Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 93.6; Princeton University, 93.2; Harvard University, 93.0; University of Chicago, 90.2; and the Imperial College London, 89.8.

Montreal's Mayor, Valérie Plante, took to Twitter earlier today to congratulate McGill and Université de Montréal for making the Top 100 in the THE rankings.
