Open Houses:

There are Open Houses (and Information Sessions) happening in the upcoming weeks at universities across Nova Scotia and beyond.

An Open House is an opportunity for prospective students to explore what a particular campus has to offer; you learn about programs, class sizes, have questions answered and meet faculty.

In other years, you could actually attend an Open House in person, but due to current circumstances, they are being offered virtually this year.

Often at an Open House, you may be able to apply for early admissions and some schools will waive their application fee! So you can apply for free and make your decision later about which school you want to attend.

 You usually have to sign up for these ahead of time. Please see the Information about Open Houses and Other Post Secondary Information Sessions listed below: 


  • Students who would like to attend University of New Brunswick in the Fall are asked to sign up at for either a Virtual Tour or a Live Chat.
