About York University

Back in 1959, the York University Act led to the establishment of a non-denominational institution called York University. It takes the third spot among the largest universities of Canada and became an independent unit in 1965 while being affiliated with the University of Toronto in initial years.

When York University came into existence, the York Board of Governor decided that there would be a residential college named Glendon College. Earlier, the university emphasized on liberal education in arts and science but it paved way for three additional faculties that include education, engineering, and medicine by the late 60s. Today, York University is home to around 55,700 students and 7,000 faculties and staff across the world.

The Keele Campus, located in Toronto, is the primary campus of York University. Both campuses of the university are covering an area of 500 acres. Name of other campus is Glendon Campus. It even serves as a satellite location of Seneca College. Markham Centre and Glendon are two other campuses of the university.

York University is home to 28 research centres and 11 faculties, including Faculty of Science, Schulich School of Business, Lassonde School of Engineering, Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies, Glendon College, Faculty of Education, Osgoode Hall Law School, Faculty of Health, Faculty of Environmental Studies, Faculty of Graduate Studies, and School of the Arts, Media, Performance and Design.

Both international and national recognition has been gained by several programs of York University. The cross-disciplinary programming and innovative educational opportunities of the university feature a great platform for students seeking meaningful careers.

Around 120 programs of the University for Undergraduates along with 17-degree types offer a broad spectrum of degree options for students. It is one of the few universities which offer a chance to defer their offer for a year in case of financial difficulties or work-related challenges. More than 300,000 alumni of the university span the globe. Steven Glenwood MacLean is a well-known Canadian astronaut who graduated from York University. Acclaimed prominence has been gained by York graduates in a number of fields.
