Experience U of R

Become a Career-ready Global Citizen

We believe there is no better teacher than experience.

This belief led us to pioneer the first co-operative education program in Western Canada more than half a century ago. Our history of providing hands-on learning opportunities has given our institution decades of insight, allowing us to fine-tune our programs and offerings so that students reap the rewards in the real world. Our students enjoy plentiful opportunities to gain experience in both paid and volunteer positions, as well as other opportunities, resulting in career-ready graduates who find work fast.

We know that learning happens best from doing. Our Centre for Experiential and Service Learning provides students with new opportunities to get hands-on experience and learn by doing.

All Our Relations

Commitment to Diversity and our Indigenous Connection

The University of Regina is committed to equity, diversity and inclusion and a strong Indigenous connection. The U of R is located on Treaty 4 and Treaty 6 territories, the ancestral lands of the nêhiyawak, Anihšināpēk, Dakota, Nakoda, and Lakota nations and homeland of the Métis/Michif Nation.

The U of R Indigenous Career Education department tailors its program towards First Nations, Métis, and Inuit University of Regina students. This includes meaningful four-month employment experiences in programs such as the Full Circle Summer Internships.

We also offer the ta-tawâw Student Centre — the link between Indigenous students and the many services offered by the University of Regina. The Centre acts as a hub where all students, faculty, staff and community on campus can find a sense of belonging.

Fourteen per cent of U of R students are self-declared Indigenous students. Read more about our Indigenous connection in our 2020-2025 Strategic Plan: All Our Relations.
