Zone Learning

Zone Learning is a new model of experiential learning built to prepare students for the 21st-century workplace. Offered only at Ryerson University, it lets students apply their degree coursework to the development of startups, causes, companies, projects or ventures.

Students develop valuable skills through workshops and bootcamps, add to resumes or portfolios with real-world experience that employers look for, or even graduate with their own startups.
