THOMPSON RIVERS UNIVERSITY

Thompson Rivers University

Flexible learning options, small class sizes, big experiences and a world of impact. Thompson Rivers University is rich with opportunities for every student, whether they want to dig deep through undergraduate or graduate research, get hands-on experience in a co-op program, develop skills in a trade, get credit for prior learning and work experience, or earn a bachelor or master’s degree.

TRU fosters undergraduate research opportunities and excellence in teaching. The university is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities and has won national teaching awards in 2018, 2019 and 2020. TRU is also the first Canadian university to achieve platinum ranking with the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education.

Thousands of students thrive on TRU’s expansive main campus in beautiful Kamloops, BC, where new, state-of-the-art buildings recently opened such as the Industrial Training and Technology Centre and the Chappell Family Building for Nursing and Population Health. Other students opt for the smaller Williams Lake campus, where programs include the unique Applied Sustainable Ranching diploma.
