About Zone Learning

Zone Learning is a new model of experiential learning built to prepare students for the 21st-century workplace. Offered only at Ryerson University, it lets students apply their degree coursework to the development of startups, causes, companies, projects or ventures.

Students develop valuable skills through workshops and bootcamps, add to resumes or portfolios with real-world experience that employers look for, or even graduate with their own startups.

Ryerson's 10 zones

Ryerson has 10 zones where students and entrepreneurs incubate ideas, projects and startups. Each zone focuses on a specific industry and offers students access to resources and mentors to help develop their own ideas or put their skills to work by collaborating on someone else’s.

Students work at the forefront of emerging markets to develop new products, explore innovative solutions, or embark on ventures to change the world.
