The richness of bilingualism

English and French are the official languages of Canada. Bilingualism is therefore an asset and an added value.

Many students feel that improving their English is important in order to succeed in their studies and benefit from new career and training opportunities. We have developed an unparalleled expertise in this area, allowing you to thrive in both English and French, the two languages of our institution, languages that also happen to be spoken all over the world, while you pursue a top-level education.

Our English language support courses allow you to take courses taught in English in your program while receiving course-specific language support, at no extra cost!

Students who wish to enrol in language support courses must first pass one of our language tests or submit the results of a recognized English test.

Programs for 2021-2022

In 2021-2022, enrolment in English language support courses will be reserved for first-year students in the following programs and courses:  

Faculty of Arts – Communication (CMN 1148, CMN 1160) 
Faculty of Engineering – Software Engineering, Computer Engineering (ITI 1120, ITI 1121)
Faculty of Health Sciences – Health Sciences (HSS 1101, PSY 1101)
Faculty of Social Sciences – International Development and Globalization, Economics (DVM 1100, ECO 1102, ECO 1104)

If your program does not offer these language support courses, you can still improve your English skills with English as a Second Language courses.

Thanks to the many resources on campus, you can improve your speaking and writing skills in an encouraging environment. In addition, you will have access to a variety of official, social, and cultural activities during the academic year, which will be perfect opportunities to practice your new skills.

And did you know that students may write assignments and exams in French or English in nearly any course, except in language courses and a few exceptions?
