Studies in Quebec are very attractive for french students for several reasons. First, there is no language barrier – only a few stray bits of vocabulary and an accent to get used to. Quebec is also attractive because it is a different culture, and the people are warm and welcoming. But how to get to grips with the Quebec education system ? Study Experience is here to guide you through this maze and has designed a special Quebec service to help you apply to university there.
Studies in Quebec have a more professional approach than they do in France. What we mean by that is that by the time you graduate, you will have you will be fully capable of working thanks to professional experience. In courses designed to prepare students for the world of work, you will be able to do an end of study internship. For those more keen on research, you can earn a doctorate to prepare for a role in research. Foreign students have to study full time.
Unlike France, students in Quebec have very few contact hours, 15h maximum, and around 3h per teaching unit. This means that students will not be able to take more than 5 options per semestre. On the flip side, universities expect students to undertake a lot of indiviudal study outside of the classroom. For every 3h of class, expect 6h of work.
It’s worth highlighting the flexibility of programmes in Quebec, in the same mould al the american educational system. Students can take many combinations of classes, not necessarily relevant to the major (why not take some astronomy classes while doing a business degree for example ?). this flexibility allows students to experiment and adapt their studies as their interests gradually manifest themselves.
