Studying at Robertson

Learning for every type of student

Choosing the right career and right college are big decisions. You want to make sure you’re making the best choices so you can be successful after you graduate. 

Learn about what we do at Robertson to help you find a meaningful career (and enjoy your time while you work towards it).

The Student Experience

As a student, you can learn in a few different ways. If you want to learn online, you can choose from structured online instructor-guided programs or more flexible self-led courses. If you enjoy a mix of in-person and online learning, our hybrid programs give you both.

No matter what you choose, you’ll be able to connect with your classmates and instructors through Brightspace in online discussion boards, instant messages, video calls and even in the classroom, on campus.

We’ve recently launched some initiatives to make your experience better.

The Junction

New co-working space

A junction is a place or point of meeting, an intersection of roads or in our case, experiences. The Junction is a space for our students to gather and collaborate, share ideas and find a sense of community at Robertson.

Peer Groups

New study group programs

Robertson Peer Groups are designed to help our students connect and study in a supportive, structured environment. Students can join predetermined groups as well as form their own. We believe the path to meaningful work includes a meaningful connection with your peers.

Engagement Hours

New ‘office hours’ dedicated for peer-to-instructor conversations

Instead of coining it your typical office hours, we’ve shifted to use the term Engagement Hours. These scheduled blocks of time allow students to connect with their instructors, whether it be for help with an assignment, career advice or other questions about their industry.

Program Opportunities

We have 35+ programs across our four schools: the School of Business, School of Community Services, School of Health and School of Technology. Choose from structured online learning, hybrid learning and flexible micro-courses to expand your skills and prepare for a meaningful career.

Gain hands-on training, experience and support from industry experts in programs that get you career-ready, fast.
