London, Ontario

Set in the heart of Southwestern Ontario, London is the region’s economic, entertainment and cultural hub. With a population of more than 366,000, London is Canada’s 11th largest city and an ideal environment to work, play and live. Big enough for the ‘big city’ experience, but still far more affordable in comparison with many other Canadian cities, London boasts an extensive educational and health care community, while providing the safe and clean atmosphere of a small community.

Western University

Considered Canada's most beautiful campus, Western University was founded in 1878. Western ranks as one of Canada’s top research-intensive universities. From fundamental to applied discovery, its researchers advance knowledge that provides tangible benefits for the economic, social, health and cultural development of citizens in London, in Canada and around the world. Western is also home to the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry for undergraduate and postgraduate medical education.
