Ryerson University is located in downtown Toronto, which was recently rated fourth most livable city in the world by The Economist. Ryerson, like Toronto, is an exceptionally multicultural community, rich with diversity of perspectives, cultures and opportunities and includes international students from over 146 countries. In the classroom, that means students are surrounded by different opinions and backgrounds to help shape their world view.
Ryerson University is dedicated to creating a culture of action and believes that education and experience go hand-in-hand and believes that real change happens when learning is inventive and adapts and responds to the world outside the classroom. Ryerson students connect with leaders in culture, business, health care or government and can find local partners for their ventures, intern at a downtown company or join a global movement. Ryerson students use Toronto as an urban laboratory, with direct access to almost every industry imaginable.
What Ryerson students learn in the classroom is enhanced by real-world knowledge through internships and co-ops, or amplified through zone learning, specialized minors and graduate programs.
As the first Ashoka Changemaker Campus in Canada, Ryerson University gives students the power to be different, learn differently, and make a difference. At Ryerson, students become a new kind of innovator, creator or entrepreneur.
Ryerson has 20 Canada Research Chairs on staff, and partnerships with more than 150 organizations in Canada and around the world. That means students will be studying with professors who have actual experience in industry and research. They’re open, easy to talk to, and happy to share what they know, inside and outside the classroom.
There is also a variety of accommodation options that students can choose from. Have a look…
