“ Coming to the University of Lethbridge has been really worthwhile. I joined several events that paved the way for me to expand my network and meet different kinds of people. They have become friends, workmates, and colleagues who will greatly contribute to my future career as a marketing professional.”


BarredoJoan CalgaryMarketingPhilippinesCampus

“ I was inspired to study at the University of Lethbridge because it is a world renowned top research institution. Even though we are a small campus we make incredible strides. My program is teaching me how to think about people and society, and one day when I become a Judge, I can make a positive impact on the wider Canadian society and on women and girls at large.”

“ Deciding to study at the University of Lethbridge, boiled down to three main things: the province’s economy, work opportunities, and access to affordable cost of study and living. After balancing these ideals with other provinces and universities, I found that the University of Lethbridge is the best choice overall.”
