We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Royal Roads is a unique Canadian public research university that specializes in leading-edge applied and professional graduate programs in Business, Tourism & Hospitality, Communication & Culture, Education & Technology, Environment & Sustainability, Humanitarian Studies, Interdisciplinary Studies, Leadership Studies and Executive Education.
We pride ourselves on approaching things a little differently because we recognize every student is different:
Faculty have global industry experience and our programs have direct applicability, appealing to students interested in acquiring new knowledge and skills while remaining current.
Degrees are offered in a variety of delivery modes: campus, online or in a blended format, designed to meet the needs of working professionals.
Small classes allow students greater access to their instructors and a supportive student community. Blended programs include a combination of on-campus residencies and online learning that allows them to deeply connect with others in their program, or cohort.
Applicants lacking formal academic education can be evaluated for admission based on a combination of formal education, informal learning, work experience and real-world life experiences.
Social innovation has always been essential to Royal Roads University. Changemaking is part of our DNA as an organization and it is embedded in everything we do, from our applied research to our culture of mentorship and collaboration for social change. And as an Ashoka U Changemaker Campus, Royal Roads is connected to a dynamic, global community of more than 40 universities and colleges committed to advancing social innovation and changemaking across their institution and beyond.
Victoria, British Columbia, boasts natural beauty, a mild coastal climate, and outdoor recreation opportunities like no other place on earth. And our campus may already be familiar to you - it’s appeared in dozens of major motion pictures and TV series over the past 80 years, including X-Men, Deadpool, Smallville and Arrow. Aside from our famous castle, RRU's campus grounds consist of over 230 hectares of parks and woods, with hiking trails and walking paths that go all the way to the Pacific Ocean, as well as gorgeous Italian, Japanese, croquet and Rose gardens.
