“I’m not sure where else in the world you could find a campus environment like this one.”

“A master’s degree in this industry is quite important, but one from Royal Roads University definitely gives me edge up on the competition. And not only is this a world-renowned program, but it’s also located right in my backyard. Instead of the typical post-secondary method of memorizing what you think the professor wants you to know, at RRU you’re encouraged to analyze the evidence and come up with your own conclusions – the instructors truly emphasize listening to, valuing and supporting my opinions. This open-minded approach to education is different than anything I’ve ever experienced.

The RRU campus is incredible, with gardens, wooded areas and a shoreline. In a moment, you can turn a corner to find a picnic table in a beautiful environment; seconds later, discover a forested area with a waterfall. There’s a relaxed, slow-paced feel to the campus – I suppose it’s kind of like taking a holiday in a school-like setting and I’m not sure where else in the world you could find a campus environment like this one. For myself, everything about RRU works: the blend of residency and online courses (meaning I can work while studying), the campus layout and the knowledgeable instructors. This school is a wonderful blend of intense learning and intense reflection.”
