Every member of UPEI's faculty and staff works to create a rich learning environment that inspires, excites, and motivates our students to ask questions, seek answers, and achieve their best in the classroom and beyond.
The Student Affairs team offers a number of supports available to you for your personal and academic success at UPEI, including personal health and wellness, academic guidance, career development, and health care services.
Our First-Year Experience Program, campus life advisors, residence life advisors, and international advisors are here to help you make the most of your time at university—to build friendships, create memories, and love university life!
Going to university isn’t just about what happens in the classroom. It’s about discovering and expressing your passions and priorities while building friendships that last a lifetime.
Panther Pride at UPEI runs deep. Make the most of your time as a UPEI student by attending a varsity or club team game, participating in student government and the UPEI Student Union, groups, societies, extra-curricular activities, and advocacy.
Your experience as a UPEI student is whatever you choose to make it!
With over 60 exchange partnerships in 28 countries, students who qualify can design their own Study Abroad programs that allow them to explore and experience the richness of other countries while earning UPEI credits. UPEI opens the door to studying in countries such as China, Korea, France, Finland, Sweden, Mexico, Australia, or Japan—and the list goes on.
Experiential learning to shape your career
Current students can choose co-operative study in some of our programs, and there are many opportunities to learn outside the curriculum with non-credit, digital professionalization badges. These badges are meant for UPEI students who want to develop and demonstrate their professional competencies to future employers.
