Day In the Life

A Different Kind of University

Your experience at Royal Roads University is different, right from the start. If you’re a working professional, we’ve created programs to help you get a practical and relevant degree without sacrificing your personal and professional life. If you’d prefer an intensive program to squeeze two years of study into one, we’ve got you covered. We understand the needs of our students, and we’ve created options to help you get what you need in a way that works with your lifestyle.

Blended Learning – A Model that Works

Our blended learning model mixes conventional classroom instruction with tutorials, workshops, web-based learning, and other technologies. You can complete most of your courses online, and reinforce them with your cohort in face-to-face intensive, on-campus small group residencies.

A Typical Day on Campus

During your residency, you’re going to work hard. The daily schedule is 8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, and you can plan on completing group projects, homework, and writing assignments after your daily sessions. The pace is challenging but the experience is worth it. You will learn how to work with different personalities. You will be expected to lead and follow, depending on the situation. You will be required to meet strict deadlines and support your team. It’s just like the real world, and you’re going to get a lot out of the program.
