At Glendon, we speak the world. We are known for our focus on languages thanks to a 50+ year track record of promoting and supporting Canada’s official languages, as well as a springboard to many other languages and cultures.
Glendon offers unique programs that are designed for success. Our exclusive international study and exchange programs, as well as our innovation, entrepreneurship and experiential learning hubs, will arm you with the skills to tackle the challenges of tomorrow, here and abroad.
We are proud to offer you a highly personalized experience. At our campus, you’ll be more than a number and you’ll meet peers, faculty and staff that have your wellbeing and success at heart. It’s in our nature.
We do languages and international really, really well.
Picture a place where 100% of the students study in two languages — English and French, and 20% study in at least three. A place where bilingual certification comes standard with every degree, whether you start as a complete beginner, are a high-school French grad, or a Francophone. Notice the signage, student newspaper, classes, and campus support services in both languages, and how Anglophones (about 2/3 of our students) and Francophones (about 1/3 of our students) intermingle, help each other learn the other language, and sometimes switch languages almost without noticing. Remark that campus employment fairs draw major organizations specifically looking to hire our bilingual grads.
Our focus on languages is perfectly complemented by the international dimension of the Glendon experience.
We want to prepare our students for an increasingly global workforce, and we celebrate the incredible diversity in our community as we do it.
