Welcome to Algoma University

Located in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada, Algoma University offers a unique, one-of-a-kind undergraduate education. We pride ourselves on providing our students with the best learning environment, which we like to call the Algoma Advantage: small class sizes, one-on-one interactions with our dedicated faculty, endless support services, great research opportunities, and plenty of chances to get involved inside and outside of the classroom.

Our campus is also one of the most diverse in Canada. Over 27 per cent of our student body comes from outside of Canada from over 30 different countries around the globe.

We embrace and foster diversity and we appreciate each person’s uniqueness and differences. We have a multi-faith prayer room allowing you to continue to practice and exercise your beliefs in a safe and welcoming environment. We also hold cultural events year round allowing you to share your culture and traditions with others.

International Student Orientation Program (ISOP)

We understand that the first few weeks of a student’s life at university can be exciting yet challenging for our International Students.

To help ease this transition we have designed a great week of workshops and events specific to International Students to help you get off on the right foot.
