Higher Learning

Niagara boasts two highly ranked post-secondary institutions, Brock University and Niagara College.

Brock University

Brock University, one of Canada’s top post-secondary institutions, is the only university in Canada that is located in a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, at the center of Canada’s Niagara Peninsula on the Niagara Escarpment.

Brock offers all the benefits of a young and modern university in a safe, community-minded city with beautiful natural surroundings. It is a comprehensive university with strong academic programming and cutting-edge research done in world-class facilities and offers more than 120 undergraduate and graduate programs.

With more than 18,000 students from 100+ countries in seven diverse Faculties, Brock is small enough to be intimate, but big enough to be world-class.
