Top universities in British Columbia


Canada’s westernmost province, British Columbia (or BC) is popular among snowsports fans, as the home of Whistler Blackcomb, North America’s largest ski resort. While not quite offering the same number of world-class universities as Ontario or Quebec, it does boast three entries within the QS World University Rankings. These include one institution in province capital Victoria and two in largest city Vancouver – a particularly attractive study destination for those keen to combine city life with close proximity to both coast and mountains.

The top universities in British Columbia are:

University of British Columbia (ranked 49th in the world; third in Canada)
Simon Fraser University (244= in the world; 13th in Canada)
University of Victoria (321= in the world; 14th in Canada)
