University Facts and Statistics: University of Saskatchewan

The University of Saskatchewan is the largest post-secondary institution in the province of Saskatchewan. The University has had much success in agricultural research including the discovery of over 100 new varieties of crops. However, the University is internationally renowned for its research in physics and since 1948 it has been Canada’s leading university in this field. Among its most notable accomplishments in this area have been the establishments of Canada’s first betatron facility, the first cobalt-60 therapy unit for non-commercial use, and a linear accelerator in 1948, 1951, and 1964 respectively. In 2004, the University of Saskatchewan opened the 'Canadian Light Source,' a $173.5 million centre for research in synchrotron light for academics, government, and industry. Similarly, the University is nationally recognized for its work in the health sciences and is the only university in Canada with a combination of institutions and colleges, including the Vaccine and Infectious Diseases Organization (VIDO), specifically researching animal, human, and plant life on a single campus. The University is currently planning a $76.1 million project called the International Vaccine Centre (INTERVAC) for 2008 to protect animal and human life from new diseases. In addition, the University of Saskatchewan is known for having some of the premier research facilities in North America including Innovation Park, which is now home to more than 127 companies with over 2,000 employees in total. In 2001, the College Building, which was erected in 1913 and is the oldest building on the University’s Saskatoon campus, was declared a National Historic Site of Canada. The University also houses the grave of former Canadian Prime Minister John George Diefenbaker, who is buried beside the 'Right Honourable John G. Diefenbaker Centre.'

  • Academics: University of Saskatchewan

    A full spectrum of undergraduate programs, including degrees, diplomas, and certificates, from over 100 disciplines and graduate degrees, from the master’s to doctorate level, from over 70 areas of study, as well as opportunities for post-graduate diplomas, are offered at the University of Saskatchewan. The University provides many study abroad opportunities of which two, the “Self-directed” and “International Student” programs, are unique in that they allow a student to develop his/her own international educational experience. The former is targeted at students who want to research a specific topic at a certain destination of their choice for a period up to one academic year. The “International Student” option, on the other hand, allows pupils to study at a foreign university even if that institution does not have a formal agreement with the University of Saskatchewan. However, a student choosing this option and who enrolls in a post-secondary school which is not partnered with the latter must pay the foreign university’s tuition and fees and ensure that credits earned can and will be applied to his/her program at the University of Saskatchewan. Additionally, the University of Saskatchewan, through its Extension Division, provides credit courses, which can be applied towards a major degree, diploma, or certificate, through dynamic, flexible arrangements for students who can otherwise not pursue post-secondary education. Such courses are offered on campus during the evening or off campus through correspondence, the worldwide web, self-paced learning, and/or face-to-face in more than 50 affiliated sites throughout Saskatchewan.
