18:1 ratio student/prof

Small class-sizes promote interaction among students and professors, creating positive group dynamics, and giving students greater access to labs, and more one-on-one conversations.  It’s a personal approach to university education and it works. Approachable, accessible faculty and crucial support programs offered through the Centre for Academic Excellence, ensure each student is on the road to academic success. 


A bilingual edge

Laurentian’s Sudbury campus offers the added advantage of an ideal environment to learn a second language. More than 40 of our programs are offered in both official languages. Students can opt to take courses in either French or English, and can earn a certificate of bilingualism in the process.
