We help International students in Yukon Territory make the transition to Canadian schools easier.
Thinking about Studying in the Yukon?
The smallest of the three Canadian territories, Yukon is widely known for its history in gold prospecting and other mining ventures. Small in population, with just over 30, 000 residents in the territory, Yukon’s capital, Whitehorse, is the only city in the region.
There is no shortage of unique experiences to be had in the Yukon. From environmental marvels such as the Northern Lights, Midnight Sun, and other natural wonders, and no shortage of scenic drives, wilderness and wildlife and the rich heritage and culture in the area, there is more than enough to see and do. If you are feeling lucky, you can also try your luck with the Klondike Gold Rush and experience the historic Dawson City.
Experiencing the Yukon first hand is one of the main things that attract students to the area to get their post-secondary education.

Some of the programs include Circumpolar studies, Northern Environment and Conservation Sciences, Northern Outdoor and Environment Studies, Renewable Resource Management as well as a number of skilled trades programs.
