It is also a great environment for international students, since the university provides significant guidance and support for them. The university also has an ideal geographic location, since it is situated between Toronto, Canada’s largest city, and Ottawa, Canada’s capital. You will also benefit from the university’s emphasis on small class sizes, which enables you to have more guidance, assistance, and a closer relationship to your professors. Essentially, Trent is a high quality teaching and research university that has the unique feature of a small size. You will be part of a welcoming, supportive, and involved campus.
Trent University is one of Canada's leading universities for undergraduate studies. The university has received an “A” rating from the Globe and Mail for its small class sizes, teaching quality, satisfied students, and campus atmosphere. The university was also ranked among the “Top 10 Undergraduate Business Schools” by Corporate Knights.
The beautiful main campus is located about 20 minutes from the center of Peterborough. Therefore, the campus itself is surrounded by the lovely Canadian wilderness, yet the excitement of town is not far away either.
The University offers students a wide range of sports activities, as well as free access to the school gym. There are many different varsity and club teams that students can join, such as rowing, rugby, soccer, volleyball, cross-country, dance, water polo and more. No matter what you choose, you will feel a sense of belonging among the campus’ various social, academic, and athletic programs.
Trent University offers student housing in its “Residential Colleges”. You can stay in a single room or in a double room. Meals are included in this university housing contract, so you would not need to shop or cook for yourself. Most European students prefer to find a private residence with other students, but it may be easier to integrate into the student life if you live in the campus residence. Either way, the university offers an orientation for international students with introduction to Canadian life and culture, meet other students from around the world, and learn about the academic transition into Trent.
