Apply over the holidays
Cozy up over the holidays and be sure to apply to U of G!

Two major deadlines are coming up in January, Future Gryphons!

January 15, 2021 is the early application deadline for domestic and international applicants.

January 25, 2021 is our Top Scholarship application deadline.

These dates will come up quickly after the break so we’re sharing 5 reasons to apply over the holidays and make U of G a big part of your 2021 plans!


W - We Put You First!

Our students are our top priority, and they know it! U of G consistently ranks highly among Canadian universities, and this year our students ranked us #1 for Student Satisfaction, according to Maclean’s. It doesn’t stop there, though – check out our rankings page to see how we compare in so many other categories, too!

H - Hearty Appetites Are Best Served Here!

You’ll want to eat here as much as you study here! Our campus food is a big point of pride, and we’ve been voted best campus food in Canada for 10+ years!

Y - You want to be a part of the Gryphon Family!

With over 29,500+ students and over 173,000 alumni, you could say we’re just one big extended family! Want to know more about what it is to be a Gryphon?

U - Unwavering Focus on Research and Innovation!

Research at U of G is woven into the fabric of who we are and infused into our teaching.

This year we’ve invested $156-million into research (that’s $10-million more than last year!), and have consistently attracted more research dollars than any other university in Canada without a medical college!  Even in a pandemic, our commitment to research is stronger than ever!

G - Guelph Grads Get It Done!

Not only is there a great chance that you’ll be employed in your field within 6 months of graduating (as are 90% of our graduates), but we also have faith that you’ll do AMAZING things, both during after your time as a U of G student. Whether winning scientific photography awards, developing exciting new food products like Cannon Fire, or ending up on prestigious lists like Top 30 Under 30 Sustainability Leaders in Canada, our students and grads are always showing the world what can be done with a bit of innovation and drive!
