The COVID-19 pandemic has shown how important science is to understand the SARS-CoV-2 virus, debunk health myths, combat illness, and research cures. Scientific discoveries can affect millions of lives—we see that throughout history and more recently, when the first person in the world received the COVID-19 vaccine in 2020, no small feat given the intense timeline to develop the vaccine.

If a career in biology fascinates you and you want to use knowledge to change the world, Tyndale University offers the first two years of a biology program that will develop your critical thinking skills and deliver a standard of academic excellence that will help set you apart from the crowd.

Combining the intimacy of small class sizes with quality instruction, Tyndale’s teaching faculty are able to fully invest in students and help them toward achieving academic success and future careers.

“Students should enroll if they have a desire to study science in a small classroom environment with a close connection to the professors and their fellow students,” says Prof. Joseph Bishay. “In the majority of biology programs in Canada, classes have hundreds or thousands of students and the individual student is lost in the crowd. This doesn’t happen at Tyndale and vastly increases their chances of academic success.”

“Tyndale provided a strong foundation of academic learning that prepared me well for my future.”

After completing Tyndale’s two-year course offerings, students apply directly to programs such as dentistry and pharmacy, or continue their undergraduate studies at another university. Students have successfully applied and transferred credits to the University of Toronto, York University, University of Ottawa, and Ryerson University toward their Bachelor of Science degree and other programs.

“Tyndale provided a strong foundation of academic learning that prepared me well for my future," says Kailey Willock, who studied biology at Tyndale from 2017–2019. “I appreciated my professors and their support in achieving my dreams.”

While at Tyndale, Willock led study groups for second-year chemistry students and enjoyed cultivating relationships with faculty and peers.

Tyndale University equips students for a future career in health sciences such as pharmacy, dentistry, medicine, veterinary medicine, or teaching. Interested candidates can apply anytime, online, at or contact Admissions at with any questions.
