UNBC earns high praise

It turns out the University of Northern British Columbia is pretty neat after all. 

Times Higher Education World University Rankings for 2020 show UNBC in the top five per cent of all universities.

It's the only Canadian school of its size to be listed.

Overall, the school was ranked between 801st and 1,000th from 1,400 schools and 92 countries listed in the report. 

Schools are scored on five categories: teaching, research, citations, industry income, and international outlook. 

“It is a tribute to our devoted faculty, dedicated students, diligent staff and committed supporters that UNBC continues to excel on the world stage,” said UNBC President Dr. Daniel Weeks. “It is fabulous to see UNBC increase its score in every category Times Higher Education uses to measure elite global universities.”

The university's strongest category was research, where it finished 675th out of 1,400. The category examines the volume of publication and research income as well as the school's reputation for research.
