Thompson Rivers University was founded in 1970 and since then it has taken pride in providing an excellent education to every student that comes from a wide variety of backgrounds and perspectives, at various stages of the learning journey. 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.

The university undertakes a wide range of customized training and consulting projects for international clients. One of the largest streams of programming in this area combines English language and teacher training for groups of qualified teachers from abroad. It is a comprehensive, learner centred, environmentally responsible institution that serves the regional, national, and international learners and the communities through high quality and flexible education, training, research and scholarship. The university empowers the students to reach their goals with flexible learning options, individualized student services, hands on learning opportunities, and a diverse, inclusive environment.

TRU?s Kamloops and Williams Lake campuses are located on the traditional territory of the Secwepemc peoples, in British Columbia?s southern interior. In Kamloops (from the Secwepemc word for ?meeting of the waters?), the main campus overlooks the junction of the North Thompson and South Thompson rivers, from which the university gets its name.

Located in the Sahali area on the city?s southwest slopes, TRU is walking distance from commercial districts and residential areas, and next door to Kamloops? largest recreational facility, Tournament Capital Centre. A wide variety of outdoor adventures and cultural events are minutes away, year-round. In the heart of the Cariboo, students can begin study in academic programs, or in various career and trades program options.
