Introduction of Brock University

Introduction to Brock

Brock University is located in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada just 20 minutes away from Niagara Falls, 45 minutes from Buffalo, New York, and 1 hour from Toronto. Brock has a park-like setting atop the Niagara Escarpment in Ontario’s Niagara peninsula. Our campus is the only Canadian university that is part of a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. We are a medium-sized university that highlights internationally recognized programs across 7 different faculties : Applied Health Sciences, Business, Education, Humanities, Mathematics & Science, Social Sciences and Graduate Studies.

Brock University is one of Canada’s fastest growing universities. In the past decade we have had the second-highest enrolment growth rate of any Ontario university. More than $300 million in construction has been committed or commissioned to expand the campus.

Brock University is committed to the process of internationalization. We have formal academic linkages with more than 100 institutions over 45 different countries. Brock University is currently the desired study destination for more than 17,500 students, about 1,400 of whom are international students. Students come to Brock University from more than 80 countries to study English as a Second Language(ESL), and earn undergraduate or graduate degrees.

Our rigorous undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs include experiential learning opportunities and one of Canada’s largest co-op programs. Our cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary programs offer multi-faceted degrees that help students build careers and get jobs. Brock graduates have one of the highest employment rates of all Ontario universities—97.5%. You can join the 60,000 Brock graduates who are applying their degrees in professions around the world.

When students from across our seven faculties gave their ratings to the Globe and Mail 2011 Canadian University Report, Brock was one of Canada’s top medium-size institutions in terms of quality of education, quality of teaching and most satisfied students.
