The University of Guelph’s Ontario Veterinary College (OVC) has once again placed first in Canada, third in North America and top ten worldwide among veterinary schools in the 2023 World University Rankings.
The annual World University Rankings by the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) international education network lists the world’s best universities in 54 academic subjects and includes some 1,500 universities from around the world.
OVC has consistently placed in the top 10 since QS first included veterinary science in its rankings in 2015.
The QS ranking methodology focuses on academic reputation, employer reputation, citations per paper, and h-index, which measures both the productivity and impact of researchers.
“We are pleased that OVC has once again been recognized for our academic excellence and world-class research,” said OVC acting dean Dr. Shayan Sharif. “The faculty, staff and students at OVC work tirelessly to advance veterinary medicine and health research for the betterment of animals, people and our planet, bringing value to communities, research partners and the regional economy.
