For more than 50 years, Humber College has been a global leader in career-focused learning.

With 33,000 full-time students including over 6,000 international students, we are the largest college in Canada with three beautiful, state-of-the-art locations.

Our programs provide you with the opportunity to learn through a balance of theoretical and practical knowledge with a focus on incorporating current industry trends, and teaching practical problem solving skills.

With 20 varsity sports teams, 50+ student clubs, mentorship programs and global opportunities for an enriching study or work experience, Humber College is committed to your success in all aspects of your life.

With our diverse experiential learning opportunities ranging from work placements, internships, applied research projects and more, you’ll be even closer to your dream career by the time you graduate.


With three locations in Toronto, Humber is not only the largest college in Canada, but also ranked 2nd on the list of Canada’s Top Research Colleges.

Humber’s six academic faculties offer you the chance to choose from hundreds of programs and a wide range of credentials including Certificates, Diplomas, Advanced Diplomas, Honours Bachelor’s Degrees and Ontario Graduate Certificates. You’ll be able to get the credit you deserve and further your education through many pathways and transfer opportunities.

Our programs are career-focused and responsive to changes in competitive global job markets. Humber professors bring a wealth of relevant industry experience to the classroom. Class sizes are small, and simulation labs and work placements bridge the gap between classroom and industry. We put theory into practice from day one, which is important because work-integrated learning means you will have experience working in your industry before you graduate! When you leave Humber you will be a professional, poised and ready to make your mark.
