Class sizes

UNB's student-to-faculty ratio is only 15:1.

At UNB you are more than a number. We are ranked among the top comprehensive universities in Canada, in the category of faculty-student ratio by Maclean's magazine. Our small class sizes and low student-to-professor ratio mean professors get to know their students by name.

Academic support

Our resources are designed to meet your needs and support your UNB student experience. We will help you explore your interests, set goals and reach your full academic potential.

You can get feedback on a paper, learn how to prepare for exams, find a tutor or find an academic advisor to help guide you through your program.
