Academic Excellence

Graduates of the liberal arts — the social sciences and humanities — are in high demand for jobs in Canada and internationally due to their strong communication, critical thinking, and problem solving skills.

In response to the worldwide call for bilingual science graduates, we are proud to offer BSc programs in Psychology and Biology, which pairs our language focused education with a hard science curriculum.

Our international Bachelor of Arts (iBA) and international Bachelor of Science (iBSc) programs add a unique global dimension to our quality programs.

International Flair

A Glendon education gives students the opportunity to study, live and work in a vibrantly international environment. With students and staff hailing from over 100 different countries, Glendonites build their language skills while earning their degree.

Our multilingual and internationally focused education proves to be highly advantageous when students join the workforce with a variety of perspectives and understandings.

Languages

We are committed to providing students with language skills for an increasingly global workforce. Whether your student is already bilingual or interested in learning another language, we will help them to improve in English and French, and possibly more languages, in a supportive environment.

Small Campus

Since the beginning, we have believed that small classes and a strong sense of community are key factors in student success. True to this vision, today our campus is home to 2,700 students with an average class size of 26, and our student satisfaction ratings are exemplary.

Campus Beauty

Set on the historic Wood family estate, our campus is a lush parkland in the heart of Toronto — an inspiring setting for university studies and a great backdrop for relaxing outside of class. We are ideally situated only moments from the subway or a short drive to downtown.

January to April: Bring Your Class to Campus

Our on-campus visit program is designed to help high school students explore their university options, get a real taste of academic and campus life, and to prepare for the transition to university. We usually welcome students in Grades 10 and 11.

Most teachers opt for 2 hours on campus; we’ll help you plan a visit that fits your schedule.

Build your visit with the following options:

Mock Lecture

Experience a university class! Choose from a selection of lectures, each taking an interdisciplinary, interactive look at a relevant, current issue. Presented by a student recruitment professional. Approximate duration: 1 hour.

This lecture looks at the use of French as an international language across the world, and how French is applied in an everyday context. It is also designed to inspire students to embrace bilingualism as it helps the brain and can open doors to a wide range of career and travel opportunities. We will also review Glendon’s French Studies program as an example of the international Francophonie present on our campus. This is an interactive, fun presentation that encourages students to speak and participate in French. Presentations are available in French or bilingually. 

In this workshop-style presentation, students learn how to use social media platforms to showcase their unique personalities and abilities. Students are invited to use their Smartphone or tablet, individually or in groups, to create and tailor their professional personal to better compete in today’s plugged-in world. Presentations are available in French, English, or bilingually.
In this interactive presentation we will highlight the programs and other features of a Glendon education, with an emphasis on the value of continuing in French at the university level. To ensure a benefit to all students, we also offer helpful tips on navigating the admissions process, choosing a field of study and maximizing scholarship opportunities. Presentations are available in French, English, or bilingually.

Campus Tour

One of our student ambassadors will show your class around our campus, exploring the facilities, services, and activities on campus. Tours are offered in English, French, or bilingually.
Approximate duration: 1 hour.

Lunch

Include some down time in your day! If you’d like to stay for a meal, we can assist you in organizing lunch on campus through our food services team.

September to early December: Let Us Come to You

During the fall, our Student Recruitment Officers travel to you with a 45 to 60 minute interactive presentation tailored to Grade 11 and 12 students. With a focus on languages and internationalism, we highlight our degrees and programs, choosing a field of study, helpful tips on navigating the admissions process, and maximizing funding opportunities.
