The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2012-2013 have been released. The global university performance tables judges world class universities across all of their core missions – teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. Three Canadian universities cracked the top 50 list, with UBC coming in at number 30.

As UBC continues to grow as a campus and community (see our in depth post on UBC campus a city in itself), it will continue to climb in the international rankings.

The top universities rankings employ 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons available, which are trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry and governments.
