Student Body

The quality and dedication of students have an enormous impact on the learning environment. Maclean’s takes two measures of entering grades, and calculates the success of the student body at winning national awards—and at graduating within a reasonable time frame. The magazine calculates, as well, the percentage of all students who come from outside the province, and of graduate students who come from abroad.

For the first time in its history, a complete guide to all the facts and figures behind the Maclean's ranking

AVERAGE ENTERING

Classes

For undergraduates, the classroom is the front line of learning. Because tenure is a significant measure of a faculty member’s worth, Maclean’s measures the commitment of universities to placing tenured and tenure-stream professors at the head of first-year classes. As well, the magazine takes into account the entire range of classes, placing them in six groups of ascending size and awarding points for the number of classes in each group: six points for each class in the smallest range, five for each in the next smallest and so on. The total points are divided by the number of classes to create a final score for each school.

t In the 1993 ranking issue, York University was reported to have placed 13th in the Faculty Awards index for Comprehensive Universities. In fact, York placed first in Faculty Awards in that category.

The calibre of the faculty is vital to the students’ own development. Maclean’s calculates the percentage of faculty with a PhD degree. It measures, as well, their success at winning national awards and peer-adjudicated grants from the three main federal granting agencies.

Finances

The financial resources at a university’s disposal determine its ability to provide students with many valuable opportunities. Maclean’s measures the size of the operating budget per weighted full-time equivalent student, as well as the percentage of the budget devoted to student services, and to scholarships and bursaries.
