Top universities in Alberta


East of British Columbia, Alberta is the most populous of Canada’s three ‘prairie provinces’. Its capital, Edmonton, and largest city, Calgary, are each home to one of Canada’s top-10 universities. Calgary in particular has a reputation for being a pleasant place to live, having been named one of the world’s cleanest cities and a leader on environmental sustainability. Edmonton’s claims to fame include North America’s largest mall, and a year-round cultural program which justifies its nickname ‘the Festival City’.

The top universities in Alberta are:

University of Alberta (96 in the world; 5th in Canada)
University of Calgary (201 in the world; 10th in Canada)
