Overview

With the beautiful city of Montreal as its backdrop, Concordia University is uniquely situated in North America’s best student city, according to the 2018 QS Student Cities Rankings. Emblematic of this fact, Concordia embodies the vibrant and diverse qualities of its surroundings, with an emphasis on innovation and academic excellence. 

Concordia University defines next-generation education. We anticipate the future of what a university can and should be. Our research and teaching is daring, transformative and distinct. We advance with a “big thinking” approach that examines societal issues from an expansive, interdisciplinary perspective. Concordia is an open and engaged university that encourages students to become active, critical and global citizens. 

With 8,500+ graduate students attending our institution, Concordia recognizes the diversity of its student body and is dedicated to providing opportunities for flexibility to suit individual research interests. Along with our state-of-the-art research facilities and a devoted faculty of scholars, we are home to a number of Canada’s leading research centres, with a 2015 Research Infosource study ranking Concordia among the top 25 research universities in Canada

Mindful that the transition from classroom to professional work can be a challenge, we encourage students to participate in our graduate and professional development workshops, GradProSkills, our entrepreneurial community housed in District 3 and experiential learning (co-op, internships, industrial experience). These initiatives have led to Concordia’s inclusion in the top 100 universities worldwide for alumni employment by the Center for World University Rankings.
