Your university years will define the rest of your life. Don’t let them be typical


Your university years will define the rest of your life. Don’t let them be typical. But you already know that…so how do you find the university that’s made for you? Here are our top three tips:

Pursue Your Passion!

If you’re still wading through Viewbooks and having trouble deciding, you're not alone. Think about this: when you study something you are interested in, it feels less like something you have to do, and more like something you want to do. Often, your marks reflect that too! Lakehead offers over 60 academic programs at two different campuses in Thunder Bay and Orillia.

Visit University campuses!

There’s no better way to find out which university is right for you than to see it for yourself. Hundreds of students and their families visit Lakehead every year. We know how important it is for you to explore campus, which is why we offer up to $500 in financial assistance for campus visits.

We also offer Open Houses to explore, discover, and experience Lakehead. Visit us in Orillia on November 4th, or Thunder Bay on December 5th! Find more Open House information here.

Take advantage of free money!

Did you know Lakehead University is #2 in Canada for scholarships and bursaries? Last year, we awarded over 11 million dollars! Find out which entrance scholarships you qualify for – they begin with $3,000 at 80%, and go up from there!


Be sure to visit us in your very own high school! To find out when one of our representatives will be at your school, visit our future students page.
