For the second year in a row, the University of Guelph’s (U of G’s) Ontario Veterinary College (OVC) has placed fifth on the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) 2021 World University Rankings of veterinary schools.
Additionally, OVC nabbed the top spot in Canada and third in North America.
“This ranking is a welcomed recognition of the world-class research and teaching happening here at the Ontario Veterinary College to improve the health of animals, people, and the environment,” says the college’s dean, Jeﬀrey Wichtel, B.VSc., PhD, ACT.
The QS ranking methodology focuses on academic reputation, research impact, and the desirability of graduates by employers, OVC says. The college has consistently been named a ‘top 10’ university since the rankings first introduced veterinary science in 2015.
After OVC, the University of Calgary (UCalgary) was the highest-ranked Canadian school in veterinary sciences, placing 42nd out of 50.
