DURHAM — Trent University has plenty to be proud of after the early release of the annual Maclean’s magazine university rankings.
The 2014 list sees Trent, which has a campus in Oshawa, named No. 1 in Ontario and No. 6 in Canada in the primarily undergraduate category.
Trent University was also ranked tops in its category for scholarships and bursaries in Canada, and is among the top five primarily undergraduate schools for student services, medical and science grants, total research dollars, awards per full-time faculty, social sciences and humanities grants and student awards.
“In our 50th anniversary year, I am pleased that Trent University continues to be recognized for the exceptional learning environment we provide for students,” said Dr. Leo Groarke, Trent’s president and vice-chancellor. “In addition to our No. 1 provincial ranking, the rankings demonstrate our strength in student services, research grants and financial support for students.”
UOIT, in Oshawa, was ranked No. 13 in Canada in the primarily undergraduate category, which is up from 15th place last year.
The Maclean’s magazine rankings place schools into one of three categories: primarily undergraduate, medical doctoral and comprehensive.
