St. Mary’s University – Canada is offering the Education Student Scholarship to students accepted into the 1st year of the Bachelor of Education Degree Program (Elementary or Secondary) in Fall 2022 and for students continuing into 2nd year of the program in Fall 2022.
This scholarship will be awarded primarily based on financial need, although other criteria such as academic standing, contribution to community or campus life, faith involvement or extracurricular activities.
In 2006, St Mary’s became a University College and was granted the power to award its own degrees by the Privy Council of the United Kingdom. In January 2014, St Mary’s was granted university status becoming ‘St Mary’s University, Twickenham’. The university has always maintained strong study-partnerships with other universities across the globe, including the University of San Francisco, the University of St Thomas(Houston), St Mary’s University, Halifax, Australian Catholic University and the Catholic University of America. In 2020, St Mary’s entered into historic partnership with The University of Notre Dame Australia.
On 17 September 2010, Pope Benedict XVIvisited St Mary’s on the second day of his four-day UK state visit, the first Papal visit to the country since Pope John Paul II visited in 1982. On campus he led three events: prayer with representatives of religious congregations in the University Chapel; the ‘Big Assembly’, a celebration of Catholic education held on the athletics track, where he addressed 3,500 young people; and a meeting with religious leaders of various denominations and faiths in the Waldegrave Drawing Room to discuss religion and belief in UK society.
On 1 October 2010, Philip Esler became the university’s second lay Principal. During 2010 and 2011, existing sports facilities were refurbished and an additional complex was added. The resulting £8.5 million sports centre was opened on 27 October by Lord Sebastian Coe, with Tim Brabants, David Weir, Rebecca Romero and Dave Bedford in attendance; the latter two, both St Mary’s alumni, were inducted into the St Mary’s Hall of Fame for Sports.
