Langley

Cost: $22,395

Students: 1,886

Because Trinity Western University is located in Langley, B.C., its students are only 45 minutes away from Vancouver's downtown core. The school also offers an ecological study area on Salt Spring Island.

Trinity Western's law school made headlines in August when the Nova Scotia Barrister's Society wanted to ban graduates from the school from practising in the province.

TWU requires students to sign a covenant that promises they will not violate "the sacredness of marriage between a man and a woman." The Nova Scotia Court of Appeal ruled in favour of the university, allowing graduates to continue to practise in the province.
