Thompson Rivers University
TRU is a comprehensive, learner-centred, environmentally responsible institution that serves its regional, national, and international learners and their communities through high quality and flexible education, training, research and scholarship. TRU’s history begins in 1970, when several new colleges were created by the provincial government to answer demand for academic and vocational programs in regions outside the urban centres served by the province’s three universities.
At Thompson Rivers University, student success is their priority. They empower their students to reach their goals with flexible learning options, individualized student services, hands-on learning opportunities, and a diverse, inclusive environment. For 45 years TRU has taken pride in providing an excellent education to every student that comes to them—from a wide variety of backgrounds and perspectives, at various stages of the learning journey. Nearly 26,000 students study on their campuses in Kamloops and Williams Lake, or in distance or online courses and programs through Open Learning.
TRU World is the international education, training, and development division at Thompson Rivers University. The department acts as a coordinating and facilitating centre for all international activity at TRU, and provides external partners with complete liaison, program development, and project management services. TRU also undertakes a wide range of customized training and consulting projects for international clients. These programs are most often delivered at the main TRU campus in Kamloops, in the surrounding communities and/or in the client's home country. One of TRU’s largest streams of programming in this area combines English language and teacher training for groups of qualified teachers from abroad. Thompson Rivers is a Canadian leader in knowledge export, delivering TRU curricula overseas through joint and accredited programs with institutional partners in China, India, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, and Dubai.
