Full list of public universities in Canada 2022/23

Want to study in Canada? And want to search universities in Canada? This page answers your questions.

To study in Canada, you will need to apply to a university or college.

But how do you apply to a university when you don’t even know them? That’s why I decided to make this post containing the names of universities in Canada. And, where they are located.

We recently published a comprehensive guide on all you need to know about studying in Canada. It’s a must read if you’re an international student planning to study in Canada.

You can also check out undergraduate courses offered in Canada if you’re looking to study at undergraduate level. And master’s courses offered in Canada if you’re planning to study for a master’s degree.

There are many universities in Canada, some of them world class. If there is one thing about Canadian universities, it is their reputation for churning out highly employable graduates.

More importantly, Canadian universities are very welcoming for international students. That’s students from different countries chose to enrol at Canadian universities and colleges each year.

And, there are different provinces in Canada. So I’ll specify the province each university is to enable you also make a choice of the Canadian city to study.
