Dynamic and Interactive Programs

Digital learning led by our professors

Wherever possible, students will complete theory-based classes in a faculty-led digital format from the comfort of their home, with many opportunities to interact with professors and classmates from Canada and around the world.

Hands-on experience

Where required, students will take part in safely structured hands-on learning in our labs to apply their knowledge to real-world situations. Depending on the program, students may also complete a capstone project, placement, or co-op that will give them the chance to grow their skills in a workplace setting. We will adapt these experiences and work with our community partners as needed to give students valuable and safe practical learning opportunities.

We recognize that the transition to digital-based classes has been quick, our professors and staff have access to an award-winning team of instructional designers and experts who help our faculty to develop engaging, well-structured course content based on best practices in online education.

Education opens many doors, and post-secondary education should be accessible to anyone of any background or age. I believe in the importance of finding the right fit for each individual student - there is no one universally right answer when it comes to education! Text 519-719-0918

Students are not penalized for repeating a course. We will take the highest grade.

We can defer the term deposit, but we cannot guarantee a seat in the following semester. It’s worth a chat with one of our recruiters to discuss the available options.

Students can complete online registration approximately one month before the semester start date. This is when students will select their timetable. It is important for students to select their timetable as early as possible to ensure they find the schedule which meets their needs. Students will receive emails and notifications in their myCambrian portal that will provide instructions for getting registered.

Although taking part in SHSM in high school does not enhance your admission requirements at this time, it does give you a “leg up” if you choose to pursue a program at Cambrian which contains the same subject matter as your SHSM stream.

Last year, Cambrian College gave away more than $1M to over 1,000 students based on academic achievement, financial need, and community involvement. Find out more.
