As the school year starts up for many post-secondary students, The University of Northern British Columbia has made its debut as a top school in the world.
The prestigious Times Higher Education has featured UNBC in the group of schools ranked 601st-800th in the world.
The Times Higher Education World University Rankings include 1000 schools from 77 countries around the globe.
UNBC placed 24th out of the 26 Canadian schools on the list.
Vice President Academic and Provost Dr. Dan Ryan says when picking a school it’s always the student’s choice but this accomplishment should bring in more bodies.
The international recognition comes after UNBC placed first in the primarily undergraduate category in Maclean’s magazine the past two years.
