With $146 million in annual research funding, we attract more money than any other university in Canada without a medical school.

5. We set you up for your future

We offer awesome opportunities and experiences like co-op, extra-curriculars, and study abroad programs. This leads to over 90% of U of G’s graduates being employed within 6 months of graduating (CUDO, 2016). Our unique programs, and flexibility, prepare you for that career you’ve been dreaming about.
