At Algoma U, we embrace diversity and appreciate each person’s uniqueness and differences. International and Canadian students learn from one-another, and truly create a unique and intercultural experience for all.
Located in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada, Algoma University offers a unique, one-of-a-kind undergraduate education.
While we may be small, Algoma U has the most diverse campus in all of Ontario. Our campus is enriched by international students from over 30 different countries, who make up 27 percent of our student body. We pride ourselves on providing our international 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.
