Royal Roads University
You come to Royal Roads to learn, study and achieve. And you will. But what you may not expect is how much you'll learn about yourself. How much your time at Royal Roads will transform your life.
Our goal is to make your Royal Roads education a valuable and fulfilling experience. Your distinct life experiences, academic background and personal history will enrich every class you’re part of.
Like us, you’re different, and that’s why we want you here. Our educational approach isn’t just about deep knowledge of subject matter, but an even deeper knowledge of self. Royal Roads University offers a wide range of programs, developed in collaboration with industry experts, in order to give you leading edge knowledge and skills that are relevant and responsive to a changing work environment.
The university is directed towards people in the workplace - professionals who want to advance their careers but who don’t want and can’t afford to quit work and disrupt their family life in order to return to school. With a philosophy that encourages people to balance their work, life and study, Royal Roads University offers programs in the areas of:
- Business and Management
- Tourism and Hospitality
- Education Studies
- Environment and Sustainability
- Conflict and Disaster Management
By using a team-based learning model, Royal Roads University offers students a challenging and supportive learning community that fosters personal and professional achievement. Royal Roads University's flexible admissions policy respects work and life experience and is considered for those people who do not have formal education.
