Saint Mary’s University looks forward to continuing its strong partnership with the educational community in Asia and enriching the lives of students both at home and abroad.
Saint Mary's is Canada’s international university, with 30 percent of its student body comprised of international students. Located in Halifax, Nova Scotia, the university has 180 partnerships with schools in 40 different countries. These partnerships allow Saint Mary’s to offer student and faculty exchanges, academic collaborations, and credit transfers.
“We have wonderful support systems in place to ensure our international students succeed,” said Dr. Robert Summerby-Murray, President of Saint Mary’s University.
“We know that students and their parents are looking for a quality education, as well as a safe, supportive learning environment. And that’s exactly what Saint Mary’s provides,” he added.
Over the past decade, Saint Mary’s has cultivated international partnerships across the globe, including a long-term partnership with Beijing Normal University (BNUZ). Hundreds of students from BNUZ have attended SaintMary’s. Currently, there are more than 120 BNUZ students studying at the Halifax campus.
In 2014, the prestigious Sobey School of Business at Saint Mary’s expanded its partnership with BNUZ and launched a unique Bachelor of Commerce degree in China, which offers students a major in Finance, and is jointly taught by Saint Mary’s faculty members.
Through its continued relationships with Asian universities, Saint Mary’s provides an unmatched educational experience that inspires the next generation of global citizens.
