Open House

One of the best ways to discover which courses and programs are right for you is to attend a free Open House.

Open House sessions are held on the Ryerson campus shortly before the beginning of each academic term (in November, April, and August). These are great opportunities to meet with well-informed staff members and instructors that can help you choose your ideal learning path.
