List of All Colleges and Universities in Alberta

The province of Alberta, named after a daughter of Queen Victoria, was established in 1905. It is located in western Canada. Alberta is bordered by the provinces of British Columbia to the west and Saskatchewan to the east, the Northwest Territories to the north, and Montana’s US state to the south. 

It is the sixth-largest province in Canada in total land area and the 4th most populous province in Canada. This province is famous for sunshine, mountains, open spaces, forests, and fresh air. It includes parts of the Canadian Rockies and is known for its oil, natural gas, and cattle farming. 

There are 162 Designated Learning Institutions (DLI) in Alberta. We have included all on our list of all colleges and universities in Alberta. 

Colleges and Universities in Alberta at a Glance

Alberta offers a unique student experience for international students. Out of many colleges and universities, there are plenty of options to choose from based on your preference and need. But, before you choose any institution be sure to check their DLI number. 

Designated Learning Institution or DLI number is provided to those institutions approved by a provincial or territorial government to host international students. Moreover, please note that not all programs at the DLI institutions are eligible for Post Graduation Work Permit (PGWP). 

So, before you apply make sure that your program is PGWP eligible. DLI number starts with “O” not 0 (zero). Let’s begin with the list of all colleges and universities in Alberta.
