Yorkville Referral Program

Recognizing the Impact of Your Advocacy

As Yorkville University students and graduates, you have first-hand experience of our student-first approach to teaching and our goal of transforming lives with education. You are our best advocates!

We appreciate your contributions in promoting our programs and connecting us with purposeful individuals. As a sign of our gratitude, we are very pleased to introduce the Yorkville Referral Program (YRP) to recognize the impact of your advocacy.

With the YRP, you can now refer your family, friends, and colleagues to our programs. In return, we will provide you with a $250 gift card upon the referred student’s completion of one (1) full term of courses in their program of choice.

You can also refer someone to creative diploma programs offered by our partner school Toronto Film School. Click here to learn more.

If you know someone you believe can benefit from Yorkville University programs, simply fill out the form below. We will send you and your referee emails with more information.
