We have Canada's only undergraduate program in traditional music.

How do you like the sound of that?

Cape Breton University is nestled in the heart of Cape Breton Island in Sydney, Nova Scotia. As the second-largest city in Nova Scotia, it is said that Sydney is the best of both worlds, offering the amenities of a medium-sized, urban area with the safe and friendly atmosphere of a small town.

Along with our great location, CBU is home to many of Canada’s most content students, which is why we’ve consistently rated among the country’s highest for student satisfaction. We also have some of the
highest academic achievers, with Nova Scotia’s highest percentage of students with high school averages of 95+.

Every day, amazing things happen at CBU. We have the small class sizes, incredible value for tuition, a diverse community of international students, a deep commitment to leadership in Aboriginal education, exciting research opportunities, and a wide range of degree programs that will launch your future career.

Whether you want to study engineering, healthcare, education, arts, business, hospitality, or pretty much anything else—we have a one-of-a-kind education waiting for you. Plus, our campus life is second to none.
