Royal Roads University

Royal Roads University is a public university with a distinct mandate to provide applied and professional programs that respond to the labour market needs of B.C. and Canada. Its unique programs and its interdisciplinary learning and teaching approach focus on preparing students with the knowledge, skills and competencies required to develop solutions to today’s complex problems.

Located in one of Canada’s most beautiful national historic sites – Vancouver Island’s Hatley Park – Royal Roads has a history of excellence in leadership and learning. With a balance of graduate, undergraduate and certificate programs, the university’s programs are designed with students in mind, whether a new student, working professional or lifelong learner.

Royal Roads understands the needs and aspirations of its students, and has created options to deliver a transformative experience in a way that fits the learner’s lifestyle. Its blended delivery model with short, intensive on-campus residencies combined with online courses offers students a convenient way to pursue their education. Unique to Royal Roads is its collaborative cohort learning community model which features group-based course work – both on-campus and online – providing a resource of like-minded peers for students to share, challenge and grow with throughout their program. Even after graduation, these groups continue to support aspirations to ensure that life-changing experience with Royal Roads enables not only professional transformation, but a personal one as well.
