    The University of Saskatchewan (USask) is one of Canada’s oldest and most distinguished universities. Established in 1907, USask is a member of the U15 Group of Canadian research-intensive universities, and is one of few universities to hold multiple Canada Excellence Research Chairs.

    Located in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in Western Canada, USask is known for its collaborative, interdisciplinary approaches to tackling some of the greatest global challenges of our era—water and food security, energy sustainability, and infectious disease.

    USask received more than $243 million in annual sponsored research income, supporting the university’s signature areas of research which include agriculture, water security, energy and mineral resources, “one health” (an integrated approach to animal, human and environmental health), Indigenous peoples, and innovative applications of Canada’s only synchrotron research facility, the USask-owned Canadian Light Source (CLS). USask’s Global Institute for Water Security is home to the world’s largest university-led freshwater research program, Global Water futures, a $259-million investment with more than 355 partners around the world.

    Close to 26,000 students from more than 110 countries study at USask which offers over 130 academic programs and has 13 colleges, three graduate schools, and six affiliated or federated colleges. Study is enhanced by world-class research centres, including the CLS, Global Institute for Water Security, International Vaccine Centre, Global Institute for Food Security, Crop Development Centre, Health Sciences Complex, and Saskatchewan Centre for Cyclotron Sciences operated by the university’s Sylvia Fedoruk Canadian Centre for Nuclear Innovation.

    Students, faculty, researchers and staff enjoy a high level of support typical of a smaller university, creating an environment that inspires collaboration, innovation and discovery. There are more than 100 student clubs, seven on-campus museums and art galleries, and a state-of-the-art Physical Activity Complex. USask also offers close to $24 million CDN in scholarships, bursaries and awards to students every year. Students receive the U-Pass which offers unlimited public transit in Saskatoon throughout the school year. New international students have access to a special welcome and orientation service which includes free transportation from the airport and first-night accommodation.

    The historic main campus is recognized as one of the most beautiful in Canada, with plenty of green space, stately greystone buildings and tree-lined walkways. With a rising population of 270,000, Saskatoon offers many of the amenities of a large urban centre along with the friendliness, accessibility, and safety of a smaller city. There is plenty to do in Saskatoon every season, with live music events, festivals and cultural experiences offered year round.

    USask’s more than 158,000 living alumni are spread across the world. Alumni include 72 Rhodes Scholars, two Nobel Prize winners, five Olympic gold medalists, one Prime Minister of Canada, nine premiers of Canadian provinces, three Justices of the Supreme Court of Canada, and one Oscar winner. Its graduates, recognized for their work ethic, resourceful nature and determination, will continue to build on a long history of success to address the world’s challenges now and in the future.
