About Kwantlen Polytechnic University

Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) is one of the largest institutions by enrollment in British Columbia with a total of 20,000 students and 1,400 faculty members across its five locations.

The university offers undergraduate and vocational education including bachelor's degrees, associate degrees, diplomas, certificates, apprenticeships, and citations.

Students can choose to study from over 120 different degree, diploma, certificate and citation programmes, as well as foundation and in-school apprenticeship training. Many of its programmes are unique and cannot be found at other post-secondary institutions. For example, it offers the only brewing diploma of its kind in British Columbia and teaches fashion and technology and product design courses that are unique to Western Canada. Its bachelor of horticulture science in urban ecosystems is the only undergraduate degree in North America dedicated to the study of urban ecosystems.

Classes are taught with a maximum of 35 students, with many classes even smaller.

Flexible scheduling enables students to take courses full-time or part-time with classes in the morning, afternoon, or evening, with some online courses also available.

The university had six varsity teams competing in four sports - men's and women's football, men's and women's basketball, badminton and golf. The athletic teams are known as the Kwantlen Eagles.
