London, Ontario

Committed to educating passionate, creative, intelligent women — like you — who want to lead boldly in a rapidly changing world.

Brescia is Canada’s only women’s university. We were founded in 1919 by the Ursuline Sisters, strong women of faith who are committed to social justice, community service, and the development of women.

Brescia is affiliated with Western University, the third-largest university in the province. That means you’ll benefit from the small, supportive atmosphere at Brescia while still enjoying the resources Western has to offer.

In addition to Brescia, you may take classes with men and women at Western’s main campus, Huron, and King’s University Colleges. When you graduate, your degree will be granted by Western University.

At Brescia, you’ll:

  • Have endless opportunities to enhance your leadership skills

  • Benefit from an exceptional education that is tailored to you and the way you learn best

  • Learn from compassionate professors who will mentor – and empower – you

  • Feel comfortable to openly share your opinions and ideas – in the classroom and beyond

  • Bond with women who share your desire to be truly educated and to make a difference in the world

Programs: pre-university Preliminary Year program; Bachelor’s degrees in Arts and Social Science, Management and Organizational Studies, Family Studies, Health Sciences and Kinesiology; Bachelor’s and Master’s of Science degrees in Foods and Nutrition with Specializations in Nutrition and Dietetics and Food Science and Technology
