Quest University Canada is Canada’s first independent, non-profit university that is focused solely on excellence in undergrad education. Its campus is located on ancestral lands of the Squamish Nation being founded in 2002 by former University of British Columbia president Dr. David Strangway. The university offers only one degree that of Bachelors of Arts and Sciences. As uncommon as it may sound, the university is not following the usual path where students take several classes simultaneously in a semester.
At Quest, students focus on single “block” courses that run 3 hours per day, every day for 3.5 weeks. Students enjoy a competition free environment where they do not have to comply with multi-tasking activities that pull students in various directions.

As Quest students, they enjoy the blossoming community as an integral part of the Quest experience. Thus, students live on campus for all four years of their undergraduate degree. Quest residences offer a diversified range of living options. Students who are enticed by what they have read so far do not have to worry about the financial aspect as Quest offers a number of scholarships meant to recognize students. Its scholarship ranges from $2000 to full tuition.
