The University of Ottawa is one of Canada’s English-French speaking academic institutions and is among the largest bilingual universities in the world. In the university ranking by Times Higher Education for the year 2020, the University of Ottawa placed among the top 150 universities in the world, which further solidifies its reputation for offering world-class quality education. Meanwhile, among the best universities in Canada, the University of Ottawa ranks seventh place.

Also known as uOttawa, the university has 10 faculties that administer more than 450 academic programs offered to both local and international students. Among these faculties is the Faculty of Law, which also ranks among the 100 best law schools in the world. The Faculty of Law is divided into Common Law and Civil Law sections and considered as one of the best legal education institutions and the largest law school in the country.

Noteworthy programs under its Faculty of Medicine include undergraduate and postgraduate studies in medical education and medical research. Other core programs offered by the university cover social sciences, science, engineering, and business fields. When it comes to arts and languages, uOttawa is one of the universities that actively offer tailored programs for second-language training through one of its core programs, Bilingualism Studies.

Established in 1848, uOttawa was founded by the first Roman Catholic bishop of the Bytown diocese, oblate priest Joseph-Bruno Guigues. The university was first called Bytown College and was originally located in a wooden building beside the Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica. Later on in 1856, the institution was moved to a property in Sandy Hill donated by businessman and political figure, Louis-Théodore Besserer. When uOttawa gained its university status in 1866, it also became the last institution to receive a Royal Charter from London. However, it was not until July of 1965 when the university became a publicly funded corporation, independent from other institutions, including religious organizations.

For the past 20 years, uOttawa has been exerting dedicated efforts in the research field, making it one of the top research-intensive universities in the country. Part of this growth is reinforcing its STEM-focused research studies by launching the STEM Complex in 2018. The STEM Complex is composed of facilities dedicated to research studies in innovating teaching and learning.

Aside from uOttawa’s goal to be an internationally acclaimed university, part of its growth plan is to establish sustainability not only in terms of environmental matters but also when it comes to the financial stability and the physical and mental well-being of those within its community.
