Trent University
Born during the tumultuous 1960s, Trent University is a liberal arts and science school in the very best sense. It offers undergraduate students a solid base in business, the environment and education, as well as a diverse portfolio of science degrees, including nursing and a new medical professional stream designed for students planning to pursue professional medical programs after graduation.

Trent offers academically rigorous programs with all the benefits of high-quality research and interactive teaching within a personal, close-knit community. Class discussions are lively and candid, given that many classes have fewer than 30 students, and a number of mentoring programs connect students with alumni to talk about careers and networking.

Then there’s the scenery. Located on the picturesque banks of the Otonabee River, the Peterborough campus is beautiful, featuring more than 30km of trails attracting hikers and cyclists. A second campus, Trent Durham, is located in Oshawa, Ontario, and is especially teaching focused.
