Description

The University of Saskatchewan is a research-lead university situated in the picturesque city of Saskatoon, Canada. Founded in 1907, the university is especially renowned for its contributions to medical research.

Saskatchewan’s impressive scientific research facilities include the Canadian Light Source, a research centre specialising in health, agriculture and the environment. It’s also home to Canada’s only synchrotron (a type of particle accelerator) and the International Vaccine Centre: a state of the art facility for the study of infectious diseases.

Although the university offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in over 200 subjects, it has gained particular recognition in the fields of agriculture, engineering, the environment and veterinary medicine.

The university has a population of over 19,000 students and prides itself on providing a high level of support and interpersonal training. It offers a range of free services to help support students’ needs, including the option of weekly in-house tutoring.

Central to the university’s mission is its emphasis on diversity, with a programme of initiatives in place that seek to increase the visibility of Aboriginal culture on campus and strengthen the university’s relationship within the wider community.

Saskatchewan is also the only Canadian university to have partnered with the University of Oxford in the UK, which allows its students to embark on a year’s study at the prestigious St Anne’s College. The partnership came about after the Oxford College expressed a particular interest in the way Saskatchewan had incorporated a focus on aboriginal culture into its mission.
