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.
