Learn by thinking—and doing

Nearly all of our undergraduate programs are designed with experiential, or hands-on, learning at their core, so you’ll emerge ready to launch your career in Canada or abroad.

87% of our graduates are employed within six months after graduation

Work while you study

Many of our faculties offer co-op work programs, which means you could gain up to 20 months of full-time professional Canadian experience, earn credits, build a professional network, and earn an average annual salary of $36,500—all before you graduate.

About 50% of our co-op students secure a full-time job before graduating

Develop your entrepreneurial skills

Ryerson boasts Canada’s largest university incubator network, called Zone Learning. There are 10 “zones,” or incubators, on campus—each with a focus on a different industry— that provide opportunities to brainstorm ideas, gain real-world experience, build your resume, and even access funding to build your own startup.

“Through Ryerson’s networking events and on-campus career fairs, I found my first professional part-time jobs and internships in Toronto. Those were valuable stepping stones that gave me a head start in my career here in Canada after graduation.”

“The key to my success was Ryerson’s extensive network. I connected with industry leaders in the start-up ecosystem by getting involved with student groups. Those connections helped me secure a full-time job in a fast-paced start-up upon graduation.”

“The job I have today is largely thanks to the internship Ryerson allowed me to do during my last semester. The company kept me past my internship, so I was set up for career success here in Canada before I even graduated.”
