AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA, WE are EXPLORERS. We believe that education is an adventure. We know that the pathway to achieving excellence goes beyond the classroom – it’s a journey of exploration. Exploration is about doing research that inspires you, getting real-world job experience, building lifelong friendships in a new city, and trying new things in your day-to-day life. Exploration is about using your curious mind to discover and understand a subject inside and out. It means asking tough questions and actively seeking the answers, and knowing your area of expertise through and through. It’s also about you and your life experience. We want you to explore your skills and talents…and discover new ones that you never knew you had!

UAlberta is the place to take your journey to excellence.

“I’m doing my PhD in geology. I get to work independently on my own individual research project. I like the challenge of doing a lot of lab work and some field work. I did work in Fiji, looking at the volcanic history of mantle (the layer between Earth’s crust and outer core). A lot of people here have field areas in Canada and other places around the world, like Tanzania, Africa.”

“WHEN I FIRST CAME TO CANADA, I WENT TO THE INTERNATIONAL STUDENT SERVICES,

THEY WERE really HELPFUL. THEY MADE IT REALLY EASY FOR ME TO APPLY FOR SCHOLARSHIPS AND TO REGISTER IN COURSES. THEY GAVE ME A LOT OF INFORMATION ON HOW TO REGISTER, WHERE TO GO, AND HOW TO CONTACT AN ADVISOR. THEY HELPED A LOT!”

“In my second year, I started volunteering for International Student Services. I met a lot of people and the best friends that I have right
