university campus in Canada offers bilingual or trilingual international bachelor’s degrees for all its programs, and that’s us!
Develop your language advantage
Glendon is a multilingual campus where bilingual and trilingual programs reflect Canada’s cultural diversity in addition to offering a window on the rest of the world.
At Glendon, your program of study will include one or more courses in another language each year. We promote language learning, yet bilingualism is not a prerequisite for most of our programs. All our students write a language assessment in one of Canada’s official languages in order to be placed at the most appropriate level.
Did you know? Even if you are a beginner in one of Canada’s official languages, you will only be required to take 4 hours of class per week in that language during your studies at Glendon.
Learning a new language opens many doors:
- Bilingualism is in demand by today’s employers. In Canada, salaries are 18 to 20% higher on average for bilingual employees.
- Furthermore, speaking a second language strengthens your memory as well as problem-solving and multitasking skills.
Small campus, big heart
Glendon enthusiastically welcomes students who want to leave their mark on the society of the future, whether here or anywhere in the world. And we believe that, to make those ambitions a reality, every student deserves our attention.
No matter who you are, Glendon gives you every chance of enjoying a successful future!

Political Science, 2020
At Glendon, I was able to really get involved in clubs and the community. I was the President of the Glendon African Network and my hard work led to me being named one of the Top 100 black women to watch in Canada. These experiences have allowed me to build my resume and develop skills such as communication, teamwork and time management that will help me in my future career.
