Cape Breton University’s vision of post-secondary education allows students to pursue dynamic fields of study — both on campus and through online education — and to design a university education ideally suited for success in liberal arts, business, education, health, science and technology. Students who study at Cape Breton University have the opportunity to thrive in a vibrant atmosphere where innovative and critical thinking is encouraged by passionate and engaging professors. With some of the smallest class sizes in Canada, CBU proudly provides students with a personal educational experience.
Research and development opportunities on campus and in the field put some of our top expert researchers in direct contact with undergraduate students, providing them with research projects generally only available to graduate students.
Home to more than 3,000 students with close to 700 international students from 25 plus countries, Cape Breton University offers a global learning experience – one that extends far beyond campus -with opportunities for students to study abroad, grow within a multi-cultural campus community and collaborate on research projects that take place in non-traditional laboratories like a village in Africa.
Campus life is fuelled by exceptional student support services and an energetic Students’ Union, creating a vibrant learning environment that is both academically and socially rewarding. Known as Nova Scotia’s Masterpiece with its deep harbours, rolling hills, sandy beaches and lush forests, Cape Breton Island provides the ideal location for contemplation and discovery. Combined with strong Celtic roots and breathtaking scenery, the Island provides a perfect backdrop for student to pursue their studies.
