Leadership with Heart

Established in 1863, Huron is the founding institution of Western University and one of Canada’s oldest universities. Our distinctive business, liberal arts and ethics-based learning environments offer elite yet accessible education where personalized learning experiences position students for leadership and professional success, while also developing their character.

Huron is completely unique to post-secondary institutions in Canada. We recognize the best way for students to learn is through one-on-one mentorship provided by world-renowned professors, who take the time to understand how they can support your life’s ambitions. Our small class sizes enable these types of environments by ensuring our faculty members are able to concentrate on each individual student – and nurture their unique gifts.

In addition to cultivating an exclusive and prestigious small-knit community, Huron’s buildings and residences are located in the heart of Western University’s campus. That means, Huron students also have full access to all the resources, recreational activities and athletic facilities of the wider campus. Plus, when you graduate, you will receive a Western University degree – with a much-deserved Huron distinction.

We know the world is hungry for principled leaders who have the integrity to solve problems with wisdom and justice. This is why, at Huron, our commitment to educating Leaders with Heart is woven into every aspect of our academics, social community and student life. We are the only university in Canada committed to ensuring each & every student experiences the value of civic engagement through community-based learning, volunteer activities, research and travel study.

From guaranteed paid internships for every single student through to personalized one-on-one academic and career development support, Huron will help position you for the attainment of professional prestige and a rewarding philanthropic and personal life. Learn more about why Huron, Ontario – and Canada more broadly – are the best possible choices for your international learning experiences.


Overarching stats statements

Its all about you

The Huron Experience is truly one-of-a-kind.  While most universities take in thousands of students every year, Huron selectively limits our annual incoming cohort to around 500 students each year. Even though we keep our community strategically small, we ensure they are truly representative of our global community, and we welcome exceptional young leaders from dozens of countries all over the world to our campus each year. This means, the average number of students in your classes will be 30 rather than 300, 500 or 800 like most other undergraduate programs. Plus, our staff to student ratio is double the national average. For us, the quality of your experience will always be more important than merely increasingly the quantity of our students.

Why do we do this? Because it’s all about you. At Huron, you can expect a premium undergraduate experience. Our staff and faculty will know your name, not just your student number. We will know your story and are personally invested in making sure you achieve your goals and maximize your potential.

Build the degree that's right for you

Pursue your passions: dive deep into a subject specialization of your choice or explore a breadth of academic areas by combining subjects within highly-customizable majors and minors. We know diverse and balanced course offerings endow our students with transferrable skills, which will best prepare them for the modern job market. At Huron, you can also take courses and combine majors with most programs at other faculties at Western University, such as computer science, health science, biology, criminology and much more.

Guaranteed Paid Internships For All Students

Paid Internships: At Huron, every single student is guaranteed a paid internship, so you will get to connect your learning with workplace experience, and earn while your learn.

Your personal Career Development team member will help connect you with a position that sparks your curiosity and nurtures your interests, while providing you with experiences to add to your resume.

This, along with our strategically selective campus, means you’re not competing with hundreds of students for internship positions so Huron students always have a better chance to secure a meaningful experience.
