Ryerson University has crept up two spots in Maclean’s magazine 2014 university rankings.

Released Thursday, the rankings are split into three categories: primarily undergraduate, comprehensive, and medical doctorate.

In the comprehensive category, the division in which Ryerson was ranked, the school jumped to the 10th spot from last year’s 12th.

The university isn’t ranked in the ‘primarily undergraduate’ category,’ which lists the best schools that are “largely focused on undergraduate education, with relatively fewer graduate programs and graduate students.” Since Ryerson has no medical school, it is not eligible for recognition in the medical doctorate category.

Maclean’s rankings are based on publicly available and recent data from the universities, which the magazine uses to calculate scores for students and classes, faculty, university resources, libraries, student support and reputation.

Let us know what you think of the rankings in the comment section below.
