Studying in PEI

If you're exploring post-secondary options, you should know that Prince Edward Island (PEI) is the ideal place to study. Small class sizes, a variety of educational programs, employment opportunities, and world-class educational institutions in a safe and welcoming community are excellent conditions for furthering your education.

In PEI, post-secondary is generally considered the stage of study that begins after students have completed Grade 12. Students attending university or college in PEI receive an excellent education with access to a wide variety of courses and programs, from skilled trade diplomas to doctorates. PEI is also well situated for studying in other regions of the Maritimes with over 15 universities within a four-hour drive.

Post Secondary and Continuing Education, a division of the Department of Innovation and Advanced Learning, provides important information about post-secondary education in PEI and the PEI Association for Newcomers to Canada provides a general Guide to Post-secondary Education.
