About TWU

Trinity Western University is Canada’s largest Christian university. We're consistently ranked with an A+ for Quality of Teaching and Learning in The Globe and Mail Canadian University Report. Our students also gave us the highest ranking in Canada for Enriching Educational Experience as reported in Maclean’s magazine. But why has Trinity Western ranked so well nationally? The answer gets to the core of why our graduates are so special.


TWU is a “faith-based academic community,” which means we exist so students, professors, and alumni to share the truth, hope, and reconciliation of Christ’s love with the world.

We provide challenging academic programs and a wide variety of opportunities for students to apply what they’re learning on and off campus. In class, students openly discuss faith and wrestle with life's big questions while gaining the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in the working world.

At TWU, we offer a liberal arts education, which means students study a variety of disciplines outside of their chosen majors. It gives them a chance to explore different areas and learn to think critically — a skill that makes all the difference to employers who are looking for experienced creative thinkers.


We live and learn together. Professors are dedicated to challenging and getting to know students. Our small campus and classrooms make it easy for everyone to find their place in our diverse and vibrant community. Whether it’s playing intramural soccer, getting involved in a discipleship group, or having coffee with your professors, there's something for every student here.

Our community has a common desire to serve others for the glory of God. From nursing students helping to provide better health care in Zambia, to the International Social Justice Club raising awareness of the sex-trade industry, to graduates working with the homeless in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, our students use their education to meet the world’s deepest needs.

After their time at TWU, students leave not only knowing what they are called to do, but who they are called to be.
