What’s your ambition saying to you?

Ambition drives all of us forward, powering us to reach higher and do more. Whatever your aspirations, Seneca can help make them a reality.

When you listen to your ambition, you can accomplish amazing things.

You can transform a business. Advocate for equity and inclusion. Feed a city. Power the future. Save a life.

We know this because our graduates continue to show us what is possible with passion and hard work.

They’ve made a positive impact in their fields – and they’ve learned what it takes to be successful. And to make a difference.

They tell us that Seneca was an important part of their journey. It’s where they channelled their ambition and took the first steps on a successful career path.

“If it wasn’t for Seneca, I wouldn’t have a career,” said Neil Hetherington, CEO, Daily Bread Food Bank. “It was the Seneca field placement that got me my first job, and from there it propelled me into being able to serve this community.”

Seneca provides a great polytechnic education that combines rigorous academics with practical training. We offer hundreds of programs and credentials, ranging from degrees and graduate certificates to diplomas and microcredentials, delivering exactly what you need to realize your aspirations.

Eunice K. Yeboah had plenty of ambition when she arrived at Seneca. She wanted to prove that she was up for the challenge of a postsecondary education and that she could be more than a “shy student” at the back of the class.

“For me, it was a very conscious decision to come to Seneca,” said Ms. Yeboah. “My professors were great at guiding me, and I had an enriching experience. It was really a foundation for me.”

A graduate of Seneca’s Arts and Science diploma program, Ms. Yeboah is now realizing her ambition and advocating for workplace equity as a policy consultant for anti-racism with the Toronto Transit Commission.

Whatever your ambition, Seneca has a pathway that will help you achieve your goals. We take distance out of the equation thanks to our many program delivery options. Courses are delivered online, in person and through hybrid and flexible learning approaches. You can learn full time or part time, whichever works best for you.

It was this flexible approach to learning that brought Ervin Sevilla to Seneca. The Practical Nursing graduate earned his diploma part time in the evenings while working as a personal support worker during the day. Now he’s a registered practical nurse, working with cardiac patients at Toronto General Hospital.

“That’s why I chose Seneca, because of the flexible hours, which I’m grateful for,” said Mr. Sevilla. “My message for future nursing students at Seneca: If you focus on what you want in life, then you can achieve it by working hard. Dream big, start now, and you can achieve your goals.”

At Seneca, you’ll join a community of thousands of students and employees who share your dedication to building a better future for everyone. You’ll meet people from around the world, of different ages and backgrounds – all with something to contribute as they achieve their ambitions. You will fit right in.

From health care to technology, business to creative arts, community services to arts and sciences, you’ll find a program that matches your interests, your passion and your expertise.

Seneca’s dedicated professors have strong connections with industry, and we offer thousands of co-op and work placements that get you handson experience and connect you with future employers.

Just like you, Seneca is driven by ambition. We’re striving to build an institution that is equitable, sustainable and more virtual in how we deliver programs and services. The new Service Hub is transforming how you get the support you need to be successful.
