Royal Roads University is committed to the welfare of students and staff at the university. The university has taken various steps to ensure this during the coronavirus pandemic. With a proven track record for online learning, RRU has moved all of the institution’s current classes online. This includes all English for Academic Purposes and Pre-Masters programs. In addition, key student services are also available online including immigration advice, the writing centre, fitness classes and counselling support.
The university has also evaluated certain admission criteria, principally English language test scores, and is now accepting Duolingo as evidence of English language proficiency. Additionally, students are still able to apply for scholarships and financial aid with the opportunities available listed on the university website.
