Fanshawe College Student

Fanshawe is one of the largest colleges in Ontario, with six campuses and more than 40,000 students. Its name is a combination of two old English words: fane (temple or building) and shaw/shawe (woods), thus “temple in the woods.” Despite the name, the main campus is in the city of London, Ont., with other campuses in Simcoe, St. Thomas and Woodstock. It offers more than 200 programs, including diploma, degree, certificate and apprenticeship, as well as distance learning options. Fanshawe offers apprenticeship training, academic upgrading, continuing studies programs, and the opportunity to earn university transfer credits for several universities in Canada, the United States and Australia.

Robust industry partnership is one of Fanshawe’s major strengths, giving students a competitive edge in the job market. For example, Fanshawe will complete the construction of the 20,000 sq.-foot Canadian Centre for Product Validation (CCPV) in the spring of 2016, a comprehensive prototyping and test facility. The CCPV will provide students and new grads with the opportunity to be involved in testing and to make contact with industry partners.

Fanshawe offers a one-of-a-kind First Nations studies program, where students study contemporary and traditional Indigenous knowledge through the knowledge of local elders and community members. 

At its London campus, Fanshawe has almost 1,200 apartment-style residence rooms and 400 townhouse rooms. Fanshawe has one of the largest campus recreation programs in Ontario, and a steady record of success with respect to athletic performance in both the Ontario College Athletic Association and the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association.
