Following the establishment of the University of Regina in 1911, the institution has continually run its affairs in accordance with the phrase “thinking outside the box.” This can be seen in the accolades gathered by the university, some of which are: the first university in Western Canada to offer co-op courses as well as having the province’s first green roof on top of its Research and Innovation Center.
Lying in the heart of one of the largest urban parks in North America, the campus finds its befitting location around Regina’s Wascana Center. The lake and the beautiful green space at the Wascana Center make it an ideal place for students to hang around for recreational activities like skiing, jogging, cycling, and many more.
Ranked as one of the top Canadian Universities by QS Rankings, the U of R continually delivers excellent researches through its research centers and innovation hubs. Innovation also remains a core aspect of the university’s existence. From inception, the institution has always made a difference as many of its students have created fantastic innovations and groundbreaking inventions.
With the student population of over 11,000, the University of Regina offers excellent academic standards across ten faculties where students can take diverse courses in engineering, arts, social work, science, nursing, education, business administration, kinesiology and health studies, media, arts and performance, and graduate studies and research. The school also has “La Cité universitaire francophone” –a center that offers certificate and degree programs in French Language and contributes to the development of the Fransaskois community. For the sake of good welfare, the university buildings are connected to make lecture halls easy to reach for students and to protect the students from harsh weather conditions. The university welcomes about 17% of international students annually, and this makes up for good learning experience between students as they get to learn about different cultures and diverse ways of life.
