Academic Excellence

Our graduates 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 science curriculum.

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

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 their English and French in a supportive environment. There are more languages to explore like Spanish and Anishinaabemowin as well. A Glendon education provides the opportunity to study, live and work in a vibrantly international environment with students, professors and staff hailing from over 100 different countries.

Personalized Experience: Small Campus, Big Heart

Since the beginning, we have believed that small classes and a strong sense of community are key factors to student success. True to this vision, today our average class size is of 26 students, which allows for a better proximity with professors.

Campus Beauty

Set on the historic estate of the Wood family, 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 in a safe gated community, only moments from the subway or a short drive to downtown.

December to May: Bring Your Class to Campus

Our on-campus visit program is designed to help high school students explore their bilingual university options, get a real taste of academic and campus life, and 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.
