A dynamic and progressive university in the heart of Sudbury, Laurentian University offers more than 140 undergraduate programs, and 35 graduate and post-doctoral programs.  Our flexible degree structure means you can customize your major and minor studies and create a degree that’s unique to your strengths and interests.

We have one of the best faculty-student ratios you’ll find anywhere, and programs you won’t find anywhere else – like the only accredited Forensic Science program outside the U.S., and our B.Comm in Sports Administration, among many others.  Our first graduating class in Mechanical Engineering includes a team of students who are the 2011 world champions in the NASA Lunabotics competition.

Laurentian is strong on research, ranking in the top three in the country for sponsored research income among primarily undergraduate universities for three years in a row.   We have 15 distinct Centres of Research in a range of disciplines, including the world-famous underground Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNOLAB).

We’re home to the Northern Ontario School of Medicine (East Campus) and to a brand-new School of Mines.   We have the state-of-the-art Living With Lakes international research centre, a remarkable LEEDS-certified building on the shore of Lake Ramsey – the largest of several lakes on our beautiful 700-acre campus.  And that’s not all:  the Laurentian School of Architecture admitted its first class in September 2013.  It is the first new school of architecture in Canada in more than 40 years.

We’re a fully bilingual university with a solid commitment to indigenous education and a rapidly growing cohort of international students.
