Choosing a university is a major life decision. We want to help you make that decision and tell you a little bit about why Acadia stands out from the others.

For 176 years, Acadia has focused on providing a premium undergraduate experience for students from around the world. We concentrate on a quality education with a high level of student engagement. Acadia believes in educating the entire person.

For 24 consecutive years Acadia has ranked as one of the top 4 undergraduate universities in Canada and it has consistently ranked as the number 1 undergraduate university in Nova Scotia.

Acadia specializes in providing a premium undergraduate experience. It is a place where your professors mentor and coach, where disciplines intermingle, where you have opportunities for cooperative work experience and community engagement during your time here as a student.   Our Co-op Program was recently ranked #1 in the country in the small university category (Globe and Mail)

Although we are a small university, we have over 15 research centres and 6 research chairs. Our undergraduates have the opportunity to participate in many research opportunities that few other small universities can offer.

We invite you to join our community with over 50 countries around the world and we are always here to answer your questions.
