About Cape Breton University

Surrounded by pristine natural landscape, vibrant culture, and welcoming communities, Cape Breton University (CBU) is home to nearly 5,500 students from more than 40 countries worldwide.

CBU is committed to the future of Cape Breton Island, innovative economic development and sustainability programs, and Indigenous learning leadership. It offers a comprehensive set of business, science, health, professional, and liberal arts programs on the first energy self-sufficient campus in North America.

As a university dedicated to excellence in teaching and learning, CBU provides students with the advantage of outstanding experiential learning and undergraduate research opportunities in a supportive academic environment. Its programs consistently rank well above the national averages in faculty-student interaction and service-learning in diverse study fields. Cultures and a strong sense of community make Cape Breton University a special place.

Staffers at Cape Breton University's International Student and Study Abroad Centre advises international students when they arrive on campus and helps with any issues that may come up during the year. The advisors help students integrate into the local community and are responsible for orientation, non-academic advising, registration for medical coverage, and coordinating special events. 

School Highlights: 

  •  Most of CBU's programs have a co-op option to give students access to experiential learning. 
  • Because it is an undergraduate-focused research institution, students get access to research opportunities at a younger age. 
  •  CBU's class sizes are small, and students get to form a real relationship with staff and faculty.
