Learn by Actually Doing

Learn by Doing—This isn’t just our motto; it’s our educational philosophy. We provide exceptional learning experiences and many times that means taking you outside of a traditional classroom. Whether you’re growing plants in our sustainable greenhouse or creating a meal in our teaching kitchen, we’ll make sure you get the hands-on experience you need so you’re fully prepared for your future. Our programs are designed to connect you with industries and communities for real-world experience and networking.

We’re proud to partner with professional organizations and other post-secondary institutions to ensure your education takes you further. A popular option is the 2+2 program, allowing you to combine two years at Assiniboine with two years at a partner university, earning you a diploma and a degree in just four years. And increasingly, we’re seeing more students attending our college for hands-on college training to complement their previous university education.
