Study in New-brunswick, and find the best universities in New-brunswick.

New Brunswick is one of the most eastern provinces of Canada, and is situated on the edge of North Atlantic Ocean, bordering the US state of Maine. It is predominantly English speaking, but has a heavy French influence due to its French colonial past – so if languages and history are your area of interest New Brunswick is probably a good area to consider for your degree.

New Brunswick’s largest city is the historic Saint John, which is home to one of the campuses of the University of New Brunswick as well as being an important maritime centre and a popular spot for musicians, artists and actors. Other important towns include Moncton and Sackville, both of which have interesting historical literary connections.
