Our Academic Plan
We aspire to be a university where faculty, staff, and students feel supported, valued, challenged, enlightened, and inspired to learn and experiment in their work. We have maintained our commitment to providing students with an environment where they can engage with, and learn from, their professors and each other, which is outlined in Mount Saint Vincent University's Academic Plan (PDF).

Co-operative and Experiential Learning
The Mount is home to the longest-standing and second-largest accredited co-operative education program in Atlantic Canada; in fact, students across all Mount programs have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience as part of their studies. Since 1979, the Mount has offered opportunities for students to take classroom education into the workplace. More than 35 years later, over 7,000 students have successfully completed work terms.

A Leader in Research
The Mount’s research centres provide unique learning opportunities for our students while facilitating critical advancements in food security, healthy aging, Alzheimer's disease, literacy, childhood development and more. Our faculty and departments offer early access to hands-on research opportunities enabling both graduate and undergraduate students to enhance their education by working alongside many forward-thinking researchers.

The Mount’s Research Chairs include Dr. Tamara Franz-Odendaal (NSERC Chair for Women in Science and Engineering, Atlantic); Dr. Jamie Metsala (Gail and Stephen Jarislowsky Chair in Learning Disabilities); Dr. Maya Eichler (Canada Research Chair, Social Innovation and Community Engagement); Dr. Janice Keefe (Lena Isabel Jodrey Chair in Gerontology); and Dr. Zachary Zimmer (Canada Research Chair, Global Aging and Community).

Scholarships for MSVU Students
We have many scholarship opportunities that recognize outstanding academic performance and help with the cost of going to university.

What are the different types of scholarships?
The Mount has a number of different scholarships available and some of these require you to complete an application.

How do I apply?

  • Look up whether you are eligible for undergraduate or graduate scholarships (based on program)
  • Review the requirements for entrance (starting the program) or in-course (continuing student) scholarship
  • Read each scholarship's information to see whether you are automatically considered, or if there is a specific application that needs to be completed
  • Ensure that your application is completed before the deadline

International Student Funding
All international students should contact the MSVU International Education Centre who provide personal, academic, cultural, and immigration advising.

International students are eligible for most funding through the Mount in both scholarships (merit-based awards) and bursaries (awards based upon your finances). If you are coming directly from high school, you may be eligible for entrance scholarships which are automatically considered based upon admission, and can also apply for our bursary programs (see Bursaries in the left-hand menu). Government Student Loan funding in Canada is not available to International students.

Awards & Prizes of Merit
Prizes and awards are given to in-course students for particular achievements. Please note that the listing of awards and prizes is accurate, but that changes may occur.

An assistantship is funding that enables graduates or undergraduates to work with individual professors.
