About University of Guelph

The University of Guelph is like no other university in Canada. Research-intensive and learner-centred, our campuses span urban hubs and rural communities. We are known for excellence in the arts and sciences and for our commitment to developing exceptional thinkers and engaged citizens.

Career at University of Guelph

Career Services is part of the University of Guelph’s Experiential Learning Hub and offers career advising, CV and resume critiques, mock interviews, and more. They can help you prepare for a career outside academia and learn how to make meaningful connections with industry, government and not-for-profit organizations.

Throughout the year, Career services hosts networking events and career fairs, as well as workshops. You can find out what events are coming up by logging into the Experience Guelph events calendar. You can also speak to a career advisor during a drop-in session, or book a face-to-face appointment. You will be able to take advantage of all Career Services has to offer for a full year after you graduate, but you are encouraged to start thinking about your post-graduation career goals early in your graduate program.

Campus life

Three Campuses

Through a collaboration with the Humber College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning in Toronto, the University of Guelph-Humber offers a unique blend of theoretical and applied learning that allows students to earn both a university degree and a college diploma.

The University of Guelph’s campus and community are a couple of the things that we are most proud of. Whenever you ask a current student or alumni what made them decide to attend the U of G, the campus and community are always high on the list.
