A Message from President Chris Whitaker

Pursuing post-secondary education is a big decision, whether you’re about to finish high school, further your education or change careers.

Humber’s polytechnic model of education includes deep theoretical learning and applied, hands-on experience and opportunities to work with industry. We believe this unique combination gives our students the very best chance to succeed personally and professionally.

Choosing a program that matches your career and life goals – one that interests and inspires you – is easy to do at Humber. Our range of credentials includes apprenticeships, certificates, diplomas, advanced diplomas, degrees and Ontario graduate certificates – more than 200 in all.

If you start in one program and want to switch, or transfer from one credential to another, we'll work with you to help you get the credit you deserve.

We also have exceptional professors. They are award winners with extensive industry connections. They’re responsive and ready to help, and they want you to succeed.

Students have the opportunity to participate in work-integrated learning; gain valuable experience and connections with industry partners; and work and learn on applied research projects that tackle real-world industry problems and foster innovation and entrepreneurship skills.

Our dynamic learning environment extends beyond the classroom. Our distinctive campuses include athletic and fitness facilities, open-access computer labs, libraries, art galleries and lots of places to study or relax.

We also offer top-notch student services including peer tutoring, health centres, and academic and personal counselling. Our varsity teams are among the best in the country.

The Humber community has 33,000 full-time and 23,000 part-time and continuing education students across three campuses. Our students, faculty and staff contribute on campus and to our local communities. We are proud of our diversity, with international students studying at Humber from more than 130 countries. We offer a growing number of study-abroad options and work in partnership with national and internationally based institutions.

At Humber, academic achievement and work experience are fused, so that you emerge as a prepared professional, moving seamlessly from education to employment. We are focused on your future. We are Humber, and we hope that you’ll decide to be part of Humber too.

I look forward to seeing you on campus.
