2021 Maclean’s University Rankings Highlights:
*All rankings reflect the undergraduate category
For the tenth consecutive year, Trent University has ranked the number one undergraduate university in Ontario, in addition to being number one in all of Canada for scholarships for 20 years in a row as well as a provincial leader in several important student support categories – all highlights of the 2021 Maclean’s University Rankings.
“Each year, these rankings help to showcase Trent as the number one primarily undergraduate university in Ontario,” says Trent University president and vice-chancellor Dr. Leo Groarke. “Other notable results this year are Trent’s provincial and national leadership in areas that matter most to students: scholarships, support services, experiential learning, and student satisfaction.”
The rankings also reinforce Trent’s reputation as an institution that connects students with leading academic experts, as the University took the top spot for the percentage of full-time instructional faculty with Ph.D.s (or other highest-level degree), as well as the number two spot in Ontario medical/science grants. Trent also now holds the number one spot for promoting Indigenous visibility across all undergraduate universities in Canada.
In the overall national reputational rankings, which compare all 49 universities across the country, Trent holds strong in categories that showcase how Trent is shaping the next generation of global leaders – named the number one undergraduate university in Ontario for highest overall quality, and the number two undergraduate university in Ontario for producing leaders of tomorrow.
Trent’s academic programs also continue to gain recognition among the top 20 universities in all of Canada, across all categories. For the third consecutive year, the prestigious Trent School of the Environment earned Trent the honour of being the only undergraduate university to be recognized for our environmental science programs. This year, Trent’s Biology program was also recognized as a national leader.
