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 close to $309 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 $301-million investment with more than 475 partners around the world.

Close to 26,000 students from more than 125 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 more than $22 million in scholarships, bursaries and prizes 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 just over 325,000, 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 164,000 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.

USask offers its close to 21,000 undergraduate students one of the most diverse range of academic programs in Canada, including colleges and schools of medicine, veterinary medicine, law, engineering, business, agriculture, arts & science, education, nursing, pharmacy & nutrition, physical therapy, dentistry, and kinesiology, with undergraduate degrees and certificates across more than 130 fields of study.

In addition to having the opportunity to study at one of Canada’s top research universities, students have access to innovative, cutting-edge facilities and programs that are unique in the Canadian post-secondary environment. USask offers a multi-faceted, unique in Canada approach to undergraduate research experiences, including annual participation of over 3,000 students enrolled in First Year Research Experience (FYRE) courses, an array of summer research internship opportunities, and a USask-wide co-curricular credit offered through the Student Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) program – a unique research and professional skill development program that complements our course-based and faculty-supported disciplinary training, research assistantships, co-ops or internships.

Student success is one of our top priorities. In addition to the many scholarships and bursaries, students are supported through numerous services including learning communities, access and equity services, the International Student and Study Abroad Centre, Aboriginal Students’ Centre, the new Student Wellness Centre, and an on-campus language centre offering English as a Second Language (ESL) programs and bridging programs that allow ESL students to take a university-level class while finishing their English language program.

Students have the opportunity to live on campus in one of our residences, located just steps away from classrooms and services. USask residences provide an unparalleled living environment for students. Students are part of a diverse and global community where they can develop life-long friendships and create lasting memories.

The university offers students the open and supportive community they need to succeed by encouraging diverse ideas, collaboration and interdisciplinary study. Students have the opportunity to gain practical, hands-on experience in their field of study, whether by taking part in an internship or co-op program, participating in a field class, or by taking advantage of a study-abroad program at another Canadian or international institution.

The diverse community of students, staff and faculty creates an environment where all can feel welcome, and a culture of learning, growth and deeper understanding that extends beyond the classroom. Nearly 3,500 university students have self-declared as Indigenous and just over 3,100 international students are enrolled every year.

With some of the best research facilities and analytical tools in the country, USask is the choice of close to 4,300 Master’s and PhD students. The university offers more than 80 fields of study for graduate and post-doctoral studies, including three graduate schools of public health, public policy and environment and sustainability.

Solutions to global challenges require the best and brightest minds, and approaches that transcend disciplinary boundaries. For instance, environmental problems require researchers and students from multiple fields of knowledge to better understand and resolve them. At USask, the nexus of expertise from the graduate School of Environment and Sustainability, graduate School of Public Health, Global Institute of Water Security, Global Institute for Food Security, the Toxicology Centre, Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy, and many other colleges and research facilities are brought together in an interdisciplinary approach to examining problems of global importance related to topics such as climate change, environmental sustainability, and food and water security.

USask has highly integrated teams of medical, animal, social and environmental scientists working to find solutions at the interface of animal, human and environmental health. Beyond the training of doctors, nurses and veterinarians, the university is home to a broad range of academic programming and world-renowned research facilities such as the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization (VIDO) which holds over 80 U.S. patents for vaccines, six of them world firsts.

Our faculty and graduate students in agriculture, computer science, engineering, genomics, and public policy are working together through the Global Institute of Food Security and the Crop Development Centre to help feed the world through transformative innovations in digital agriculture and transformative plant breeding.

USask faculty and graduate students work shoulder to shoulder to address a wide range of basic and applied research challenges including balancing the protection of the natural environment and the ever- increasing demands for energy and natural resources; carrying out experimental and theoretical investigations of advanced materials; and exploring human-computer interaction, image analysis and nuclear and particle physics. Harnessing the power of world-class facilities in synchrotron sciences, nuclear innovation and cyclotron sciences, scientific insights are translated into ground-breaking practical applications through local, national and international partnerships.

We are engaged in research and graduate student education partnerships worldwide. USask offers more than $20 million in graduate student funding including special scholarships for international students and indigenous students. Our students work alongside top researchers including approximately 140 research chairs (18 of them Canada Research Chairs), one Canada Excellence Research Chair, one Canada 150 Research Chair, numerous Fellows of the Royal Society of Canada, 3M National Teaching Fellows, Killam Prize holders, and many other acclaimed faculty.

Our warm community welcomes people from around the world and right here at home including growing numbers of Aboriginal and international students. It creates open dialogue, and fresh opportunities for learning inside and outside the classroom.
