Science in the Spotlight:
International Applicants

We Rock!

We’re located where the decisions are made — Ottawa, Canada’s capital. With close proximity to “Silicon Valley North,” we have tons of active collaborations with high-tech and healthcare industry partners. And that means more paid work experience for our students (also known as “co-op”)!

We offer paid hands-on learning opportunities right from your first year with Dean’s Summer Research Internship.

Classrooms and labs are not enough? In courses like Earth Science, we explore Canada and the rest of the world beyond our beautiful river-side campus through field trips and field courses!

Our Bachelor's Degrees

Choose from five degrees and numerous majors:
