About This Program

Through innovative programming, integrated on-campus and field study opportunities, and the support of experienced and caring faculty, you will be prepared to succeed from the first day of classes through to graduation.

Upon completion of the first year, many St. Peter’s College students move to the U of S main campus to continue their studies. In some instances, students can complete the second year of studies with St. Peter’s College. St. Peter’s students must meet the same promotion standards as U of S students in order to move into the second year of study. Please contact Student Services for more information on promotion standards. Further information on this program can be found directly on the University of Saskatchewan’s website.
