Spring Has Sprung with Personal Development Opportunities


Calgary might be the only major city in North America not suffering the winter doldrums these days. The recent beautiful weather coincides with the release of our Spring/Summer calendar.

Among our career-focused certificates and programs are personal development courses. Spring and summer are the perfect time to focus on your interests and hobbies.

Apply your green thumb to our popular Yard & Garden courses this May and June. In addition to our courses on landscaping and gardening for Calgary’s unique climate, we are offering two new courses: Growing Food in the City and Creating Biodiversity with Insects.

On the topic of greenery, you can complete our Floral Design Certificate of Completion in only three weeks. By using the Block Code FD123 you will save 10% on course fees.

In our Photography courses, you can finally learn how to use that digital SLR camera you bought. Take courses toward your Certificate of Completion or individual courses of interest. We even have a Mountain Photography Workshop in Banff the weekend of July 24-26.

Maybe you’re planning on selling your house this year? You can learn about Home Staging in order to maximize the sale.

Our new Healthy Aging courses help you plan for retirement or help aging family members live their best lives.

Be your best self with arts and wellness courses. In addition to the courses above, check out:

Want to work out some of the winter kinks? Our Massage Therapy students give treatments in the Practicum Clinic for only $20-30 for a one-hour massage. Book here.

Don’t forget the children and teens in your life. MRU Kids is celebrating 25 years of offering fun and educational summer camps.

Registration for Spring and Summer courses is now open. After you register, download the Welcome Guide for info on parking, BookStore and amenities.

Here’s to your season of self-discovery!
