Université du Québec was created by the Québec government in 1968 and has become Canada’s largest university network. Its mission is to foster access to university education and contribute to Québec’s scientific development as well as the development of its regions. From its headquarters in Québec City, Université du Québec coordinates the programs of study offered by nearly 6,000 professors and lecturers to 87,000 students in 10 establishments across 54 municipalities throughout Québec. Université du Québec stands out for savoir-faire that combines innovation, audacity, quality training, and global outreach.
Through their teaching and research, Université du Québec establishments offer world-class training. Their professors have created partnerships with institutions in Asia, Europe, the Americas, and Africa. These partnerships keep them on the cutting edge of developments in research around the world. They also provide foreign students with training opportunities in new areas of research. Nearly 5,000 of Université du Québec’s 87,000 students are from abroad.
With the creation of Téluq, Université du Québec defined itself as a pioneer in the field of distance learning. Thanks to Téluq, students seeking to balance studies, work, and family life can access a quality French-language education in a recognized program from anywhere around the world.
At Université du Québec, all teaching is in French. It is therefore essential to have a firm grasp of that language. Students enrolled in a BA or certificate program must successfully complete an exam testing their French language skills.
Université du Québec provides assistance in the form of resources to aid in the acquisition and mastery of French.
