Uniquely located at the edge of the Pacific Ocean, in Vancouver Island’s historic Hatley Park, Royal Roads University is an extraordinary place of higher learning flexible enough to work with virtually any life schedule. Here, full-time students, working professionals and lifelong learners can fundamentally transform their education without putting their lives or careers on pause.
Since Royal Roads was established in 1995, we’ve taken a purposefully different approach. From our interdisciplinary teaching, to our applied research focus, to our team-based collaborative cohort model — all our programs are thoughtfully designed to balance both intellectual and personal growth, while keeping students firmly on the path to advancing their academic and professional careers.
We offer a full range of doctoral, graduate and undergraduate degrees, along with exceptional certificate and diploma programs. We have a mix of on-campus residencies and online courses. We value the life experiences that our students arrive with and take those diverse skills into account. And we provide a network of support to help nurture students’ growth, well beyond the classroom.
