University of New Brunswick – Fredericton

FREDERICTON, CANADA

Brief information

According to AbbreviationFinder, founded in 1785 in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada, the University of New Brunswick, originally King’s College, is one of the oldest universities in North America and the oldest English -speaking university in Canada.

At the UNB, great importance is attached to training at a high level. In the 2013 Maclean’s University Survey, the university was once again included in the ” Top Five Comprehensive Universities “.

In addition to a semester abroad, international students can also complete a bachelor’s degree here or take a language course. In total, the university offers more than 75 different courses. The students are supported in all matters so that they can achieve optimal learning results. This works not least because of the relatively small groups in which the professors can supervise their students individually.

Fredericton is home to the majority of the university’s course offerings, which is due to the fact that the main campus with the higher number of students is located here. An academic degree can be obtained here in areas such as Business Administration, Law, Science and others.
