CBU Connected

What is CBU Connected?

It’s how Cape Breton Island learners and the world come together through open access learning whether it be for credit, certificate or simply personal or professional interest.

It’s how learners around the world experience a CBU education through pathways to traditional programs on campus and options for learning in the digital space.

It’s how learners from Cape Breton Island and the world engage in lifelong learning through open access programming delivered in class or online.

It’s how we build a network of like-minded universities and colleges around the world to share world class programs, courses and learning opportunities created both by CBU and our partners.

CBU Connected brings together communities, partners and digital learning opportunities. Through innovation and creativity, we are carving a new space in higher education.
