UPEI’s four Faculties (Arts, Education, Science, and Veterinary Medicine) and two Schools (Business and Nursing) offer a wide range of programs and degrees to more than 4,400 undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students. Home to seven Canada Research Chairs, a Canada Excellence Research Chair in Aquatic Epidemiology, and four 3M Teaching Award-winners, UPEI offers its students access to over 200 exceptional faculty and research staff. UPEI students come from all walks of life; from regional, national and international locations. International students from over 50 countries comprise more than 10 percent of the University’s total enrolment. As enrolment numbers fall at many universities in the face of a declining demographic, UPEI’s numbers continue to climb.
With over $4.2 million in scholarships, international exchange and study opportunities, an active Student Union, expanding graduate programs and outstanding student-faculty interaction, UPEI offers its students a truly unique campus experience. Our alumni enjoy success in their chosen fields and are a constant reminder of the value and promise inherent in a UPEI education.
