KAMLOOPS — University is an expensive endeavour, it can cost students more than fifteen thousand dollars per year of study and finding a job once you’ve completed your studies is never a guarantee.

A recent study by the Research Universities Council of BC shows the value of being a graduate of Thompson Rivers University




In the second annual Putting Degrees to Work study, the Research Universities Council of BC found two years after completing their studies;

  • 96% of TRU grads said they were ‘satisfied’ or 'very satisfied' with their education
  • 77% of TRU grads said their program of study was relevant to their career
  • Nearly half, 47% of TRU Grads reported they earned $50,000 or more
