Simon Fraser University


Born in 1965, SFU has become Canada's leading comprehensive university with vibrant campuses in British Columbia's largest municipalities — Vancouver, Burnaby and Surrey — and deep roots in partner communities throughout the province and around the world.


We offer a wide variety of program options for you to build your own undergraduate degree - majors, minors, and certificates can be combined to create an experience unique to you. Master's and doctoral degrees are available in all eight of our faculties.

If it’s flexibility you’re after, try distance education or nights and weekends classes. For workplace skills and a global perspective, check out our Co-op and Study Abroad programs. Enrich your studies through non-academic programs that include leadership and mentorship opportunities, and sports and recreation activities.


SFU researchers work across the arts, humanities and sciences to advance knowledge in key areas set out in the Strategic Research Plan. We engage students and communities to help solve research problems and deliver results that matter.


Simon Fraser University is among Canada's leading comprehensive universities and consistently ranks as one of the top employers in the country.
