Ryerson University, Faculty of ScienceBy Asian Correspondent Mar 15, 2013 1:47AM UTC
Science has long played an integral role in educational facilities at Canada’s Ryerson University. However, a degree in science as a standalone offering is relatively new at the university. Brand-new laboratories, cutting-edge laboratories and palpable enthusiasm make this a promising destination for Asian students of science seeking credentials from a well-regarded university in the West.
The university is no stranger to praise and accolades. Ryerson is a regular first-choice university candidate for students in Ontario. Toronto is a world-class and highly diverse city, and Ryerson University campus is located right in the centre of the downtown district. Unlike most metropolitan universities, Ryerson is well-integrated into the Toronto scene. In fact, even university president Sheldon Levy has been recently named as one of the city’s 50 most influential people by Toronto Life magazine. Understandably, international students are eager to study and network here.
