KPU’s five campuses are all located in Metro Vancouver, a modern and multicultural region that has incredible natural beauty, the most temperate weather in Canada, and many career opportunities. With guaranteed small class sizes, experiential learning opportunities, and many student support services, KPU is the natural choice for students who want to become career-ready in Canada. 

Study Your Way

KPU offers 120+ innovative programs that lead to a variety of post-secondary credentials, including certificates, bachelor’s degrees, and graduate diplomas. You’ll find programs at KPU that aren’t available anywhere else in Canada.

The Polytechnic Advantage

Traditional universities focus too much on theory and textbooks. KPU is different—as a polytechnic university, we place as much importance on doing as we do on thinking.
