We Have a Program for You

Whether focusing on business technology, game design, user experience, social work, criminology or community health, our programs are mission-driven, designed to challenge you to engage with the world around you to make it a better place for everyone.

Best of the City

Shaped by its location on the historic Grand River and proximity to the major industrial and consumer markets of North America, Brantford has a thriving business community that is home to several global business operations – but people are drawn to the region for so much more. A healthy arts and culture scene, world-class trails system for walking and biking, and a strong slate of festivals and events make Brantford a vibrant place to call home for residents and students alike.

* Highly recommended by our student ambassador team
