Georgian College Changemaker Campus

Georgian accelerates student learning, careers and success. We’re home to 11,000 full-time students – including 1,500 international students from over 60 countries. More than 125 career-focused programs are taught by faculty with industry expertise across seven locations in Central Ontario: Barrie, Midland, Muskoka (Bracebridge), Orangeville, Orillia, Owen Sound and South Georgian Bay (Collingwood).

Students study part-time, full-time, online or in combination – choosing from degrees, combined degree-diplomas, graduate certificates, diplomas and certificates. We deliver numerous apprenticeship and technical trade options, providing employers with highly skilled graduates to grow and sustain their operations.

Georgian is proud to be Ontario’s #1 co-op college. Sixty-two hundred employers partner with us – and we’re the only college in Ontario with 12 programs accredited by the Canadian Association for Co-operative Education. Almost 80 per cent of students are in programs with formal work-integrated learning such as a local or international co-op, internship, placement or field experience.

Georgian is a trailblazer in entrepreneurship and social innovation education. Entrepreneurial outcomes are embedded in every program and across everything we do. Students graduate with the skills and mindsets to be innovative thinkers and changemakers – leaders who can turn ideas into businesses, innovations into careers, and challenges into opportunities.
