Our world is changing rapidly and dramatically, making knowledge and skill the new currency. The short and long term forecasts for our province and country emphasize the need for professionals with highly specialized skill sets who are ready to tackle tomorrow's challenges … frontline workers and talented managers alike.

Fanshawe College is ready for tomorrow and for more than 50 years, we have been preparing students to make meaningful and valuable social, academic and professional contributions to an evolving global society. We began modestly enough in the 1960s as a local vocational training centre. Since then, we have seen impressive growth in student population, economic impact and even the size and shape of our campus. We are now a leader in applied education and a destination of choice, attracting tens of thousands of talented students from more than 80 countries every year.

With options ranging from one-year preparatory certificates to four-year honours degrees, and plenty of other choices in between, plus hundreds of articulation agreements and curriculum-delivery partnerships with colleges and universities worldwide, Fanshawe can set anyone on the right path. We focus on putting knowledge into practice, connecting in intimate learning environments and supporting academic progress through research and professional development. Above all, we emphasize quality of experience.

We are proud of the relationships our students have with faculty and staff who care about them and challenge them to apply their talents and their hands-on training with passion. Our top-notch professors, hired directly from the field, use the latest technology, often preparing graduates well ahead of emerging trends. Within six months of graduation, 87 per cent of those grads begin to build meaningful careers all over the world, even in our still-recovering economy.

Fanshawe College has a long and successful history of unlocking potential and preparing graduates for challenging and rewarding careers. We're proud of our history and excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. For us and for our students, this is a time of transition to new environments and experiences, an open door to a world of possibility.

I invite you to browse our site and learn more about how Fanshawe can put you on the path to success!
