Georgian College of Applied Arts and Technology















However you define your goals, the best learning to get you there extends far beyond the classroom. Georgian’s leadership in co-op, student work experience and entrepreneurship education delivers powerful ways to accelerate your learning, your career and your future. The best centres of learning do far more than transmit knowledge. They’re catalysts for change. Georgian is committed to being an active agent of growth for students – but also for employers, partners and communities. We foster a culture of entrepreneurship and innovation in order to allow students to become job creators as well as job seekers. In addition to our cutting-edge curriculum, Georgian was Ontario’s first co-op education college and is a recognized leader in student work experience. We know today’s employers are looking for a different kind of postsecondary graduate and our one-of-a-kind University Partnership Centre offers our own career-focused degrees with built-in work terms as well as undergraduate and graduate degrees with partner institutions.

Georgian also offers over 125 career-focused programs on seven campuses that are located in some of the most sought-after areas in Central Ontario. These campuses play important roles in their communities, serving as hubs for academic, social, economic and cultural activities. We also have more than 550 articulation agreements with institutions around the world.
