About Bishop’s

Skyview of the Bishop's campus

Bishop’s is a different kind of university experience.

We are a community where:

  • profs know your name and care about your success
  • where the learning is lifted off the page
  • and where discovering your passion is our primary concern

We are the only English language university in Quebec outside of Montreal. As a liberal education institution with fewer than 3,000 students from over 80 countries, our primary concern is offering students a quality education in fine arts, humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and mathematics, business and education.

The small size of our institution encourages the students, faculty and staff to immerse themselves in the community, resulting in an experience that is uniquely Bishop’s.

With over 106 programs across five faculties and twenty-five departments Bishop’s is inspiring the change-makers of tomorrow.

At Bishop’s, we strive to be:

  • a community that instills confidence, courage and a sense of responsibility in its students;
  • an institution that nurtures personal and intellectual freedom and fosters enduring friendships;
  • a university that provides opportunities and the environment for students to pursue their passions;
  • a community that is welcoming, inclusive, safe and supportive.

Above all else, Bishop’s is a community. A community of scholars. A community of leaders. A community of change-makers. A community of colleagues. A community of friends.
