About Us

Founded in 1878, we deliver ‘The Western Experience’, an exemplary learning experience that engages the best and brightest people challenging them to meet ever-higher standards in the classroom and beyond. We inform every dimension of a student – intellectual, social, cultural as well as physical. From our home in London, Ont., Canada, outward across every continent, Western prepares future leaders to succeed. Considered Canada’s most beautiful university, Western’s main campus spans 400 acres of Gothic-style buildings mixed with modern, LEED-certified structures provide an idyllic environment for our community of scholars. Western appeals to students with a broad world view, those seeking to study, engage with and eventually lead in the global community. Students from more than 100 countries share in classroom experiences that broaden personal perspectives and understanding. Beyond campus, students are engaged in a variety of international study-abroad, research and volunteer opportunities. Our students strike a balance between high academic achievement and athletic/social engagement that together fosters a life-long sense of pride and belonging to the Western community. International activities have been a longstanding priority at Western. We have a heightened emphasis and investment in these important activities. A primary objective of Western International is to support an environment and community that promotes the education of global-ready graduates.
