Huron at Western University


Huron at Western University



Established in 1863, Huron is one of Canada's oldest universities and is the founding institution of Western University. Our distinctive business, social science and ethics-based learning environments offer an elite yet accessible education that has been developing Canada and the world’s most impactful Leaders with Heart for over 160 years.

This is an undergraduate experience that is completely unique to post-secondary institutions in Canada. We keep our class sizes small because we recognise that the best way for students to learn is through one-on-one mentorship provided by professors who mentor rather than lecture and where you can design your own degree to enjoy a personalised learning experience, tailored to your individual passions.

In addition to cultivating an exclusive and prestigious tight-knit community, Huron’s buildings and residences are located in the heart of the Western University campus. That means, Huron students also have full access to all the resources, recreational activities and athletic facilities of the wider campus and receive a Western University degree upon graduation.
Key facts about Huron:

- Guaranteed paid internships for every student: graduate with 4 to 16 months of work experience

- One of Canada’s most powerful alumni networks: Canada’s 3 largest companies are led by Huron Alumni and 70% of all Huron alumni hold senior leadership roles in Business, Law, Government & Global Affairs, Technology, Media & NGOs around the world. Our alumni mentorship program connects you with these influential alumni to accelerate your career.

- A learning environment unlike any other: With an average of only 30 students per class compared to 300 to 900 at most Canadian universities, at Huron you will be part of discussion-based learning where you interact with your peers and professor and learn through experiential courses on campus, across Canada and around the world.

- Huron is the only university in Ontario to be an official partner of the Harvard Business School, offering a summer programme in business essentials.

- Primarily single rooms in residence, 200+ clubs and sports on campus and a free membership to the state-of-the-art $35 million athletic facility on campus

- Free weekend trips for international students to Canadian cities and attractions such as Toronto, Niagara Falls, ski resorts and Canada's largest theme park

- The Western University degree you receive upon graduation is ranked Top 3 in Canada for Graduate Employability and 47th worldwide (QS Rankings 2022)
