94% of King’s students report being either satisfied or extremely satisfied with the overall quality of their education (CUSC 2018).
The University of King’s College is a small and extraordinarily lively liberal arts university located in Halifax, Nova Scotia on Canada’s east coast. We are best known for our humanities programs, journalism school, and science and music degrees, which all take an interdisciplinary approach to education. With under 1,000 students on campus, you will be educated in a lively academic community where professors and peers will both challenge and support you.
Since a visit to our campus isn’t possible at the moment, we’d love to connect with you for an online campus tour webinar. These sessions will be hosted by one of our student tour guides and an admissions advisor who can answer your questions! Webinars will be offered every Thursday at 2 p.m. ADT (Halifax time).

We might not be able to meet you on the road, but we’ve got King’s representatives who are dedicated to serving each region of Canada, the United States and abroad. Book your 30-minute slot to talk to them online about King’s. All meetings are Atlantic Standard Time.
