Nova Scotia Agricultural College (NSAC) is a specialized university where learning, research and industry converge to create a unique environment for students. NSAC’s programs are driven by real-world challenges to which science holds the key. Imagine learning from active researchers who spend time solving industry problems, or learning complicated concepts and analyses with only 11 other students in the class. Small classes mean individualized support and customized teaching.
Consistently ranked as one of the most research intensive universities in Atlantic Canada, NSAC offers students a rich environment where hands-on learning is the norm. On-campus greenhouses, laboratories, aquaculture facilities and a modern farm complex give students a hands-on environment where they can test theories and ideas right away.
At NSAC, it is understood that university isn’t just about academics. That’s why NSAC supports varsity teams and student-led initiatives. The number of extra-curricular activities a student can participate in is not limited and NSAC does whatever it can to help students succeed in both academics and extra activities.
NSAC also understands that postsecondary education is expensive. That’s why it has given scholarships and bursaries to 35 per cent of its students.
NSAC is located just outside the Town of Truro, in the the village of Bible Hill, Nova Scotia. It is one hour from Halifax by car and only 40 minutes from the Halifax International Airport. NSAC is about one day’s car ride from Boston or Montreal.
