About Mount Allison

Mount Allison is a small undergraduate liberal arts and science university known nationally and internationally for the quality of its programs and research. Our 16: 1 student-professor ratio, small class sizes, and emphasis on leadership and research opportunities place the focus on you. Our goal is to help you develop as a whole person, not just as student. We have been ranked as one of the top two undergraduate universities in Canada for over 20 years by Canada's most respected guide to post-secondary education, Maclean's magazine, a record unmatched by any other university in Canada.

Students graduate with Bachelor degrees in Arts, Science, Commerce, Fine Arts, and Music. Our flexible programs allow students to combine degrees, majors, and minors in unique ways that match their interests and career goals.


Mount Allison University is located on Canada’s East Coast in picturesque Sackville, New Brunswick. A classic university town, Sackville boasts natural beauty, a lively cultural scene, and a friendly, safe, and welcoming community.

The city of Moncton, and its international airport, is a short 30-minute drive away and Sackville is conveniently located within a two-hour drive from the region’s major urban centres.

Campus Life

Mount Allison students are typically very involved. They choose from over 140 clubs and societies, often find work as summer research assistants (opportunities that are rare at larger universities), and are active socially and academically.  In our small residential community of only 2600 students, you will become familiar with others quickly, and professors come to know you by name. With ample opportunities for on-campus employment, international students can take advantage of new legislation in the province of New Brunswick which allows them to work part-time, both on and off campus, and for up to two years post-graduation.
