About Centennial College

Centennial College is an award-winning community college based out of Ontario in Canada. Centennial was the first government-accredited college in Ontario, established in 1966 to serve the educational needs of the Greater Ontario region. In the past 49 years, Centennial has transformed from a local community college into one of the most culturally diverse post-secondary education institutions in Canada and a leader in international education.

Centennial has five campuses and eight specialized academic schools in Toronto, offering post-secondary, postgraduate and fast-track programs in Business, Engineering Technology and Applied Science, Communications, Media and Design, Health and Community studies, Hospitality, Tourism and Culture and Transportation as well as English Language Learning (ELL) and foundations programs for college and university preparation.

The Canadian education system is standardized by the government - ensuring exceptional quality of academic programs at all government accredited post-secondary institutions, such as Centennial College.  As a recognized Ontario College, all programs meet strict educational standards set by the Ontario Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities (MTCU).

Centennial College according to me is one of a kind. I have spent my Canadian life studying/working here. It has a lot of components that make it special. To begin with, teachers are extremely helpful and provide full support to students in explaining the topics. Additionally, they are approachable outside of classroom (or after class hours) and also try to understand individual student’s needs. Student life wise I felt completely at home with the kind of reception I received from the International Department. Global Citizenship and Equity office provides a range of programs which allows students to have an international footprint and experience. I got an opportunity to travel to southern France for French language and cultural exchange (which was my lifelong dream. And living in La Rochelle, France, soaking in culture and talking to people in French significantly improved my confidence when it comes to spoken French and encouraged me to continue my French studies after coming back to Centennial College. Additionally, there are numerous opportunities to enhance your leadership qualities. In fact, Centennial College has its own leadership program called Leadership Passport which allows student to complete certain competencies and graduate with a distinction in leadership! If I have an option I would definitely recommend and encourage anybody to come to Centennial College and live the experience. show less
