Based in one of Canada's most beautiful national historic sites, Royal Roads university (RRU) has been educating students for more than 80 years. It recently celebrated its 25th year as a public applied research university.
A diverse and vibrant institution, there are more 108 nationalities and over 1,406 international students currently studying there.
Its innovative courses are designed to be practical and relevant to the current industry standards. The university aims to equip students with the skills to be successful in the global marketplace, with programs taught by instructors with field experience, along with input from industry professionals.
The university's Learning, Teaching and Research Model (LTRM) is the cornerstone of its success. Its expert faculty focuses on producing citizens of the world, encouraging students to become passionate, determined, and confident lifelong learners.
International students are supported throughout their studies by a dedicated International Study Centre. Students can access a range of services including language support, careers services and social events.
RRU's cohort teaching model focuses on group-based coursework. This allows students to grow, learn and share with peers throughout their studies. Even after graduation, these groups will continue to support graduates in both a personal and professional capacity.
The institution is one of only 40 universities that are part of the Ashoka U Changemaker network. This recognition acknowledges RRU's commitment to social innovation and positive change.
All programs are delivered in Canada, but there are also opportunities for students to gain experience abroad during work placement residencies. The university's beautiful location offers peaceful coastlines and forestry, and the bustling cities of Vancouver and Seattle are just a short trip away.
