Renaissance College relies on experiential education, discussion-based learning, and fostering a personal academic experience for each student. We admit approximately 25-30 students per year.

Hands-on Learning

We believe that education includes adventure and travel. As part of the Renaissance College curriculum, all students complete two internships over the course of their studies. The first is a placement anywhere in Canada. The second takes place in one of various locations abroad (i.e. Bhutan, Vietnam, Belize, Germany, Malawi, Burkina Faso, India, Tonga and other locations).
