Quebec: An exciting place to live, study and work
Quebec is a culturally, linguistically, and historically unique province of Canada, with a majority French speaking population. Contrary to popular belief, however, not all colleges and universities in Quebec require French. Indeed, some of the most renowned institutions are predominantly English in character.
The province offers study options in a dynamic and lively atmosphere. McGill University, Laval, Bishops, L’Université de Montreal, and Concordia, as well as many other universities and modern polytechnic colleges, are located here. The city of Montreal, Quebec’s metropolis, is home to four sizable universities, giving it the highest percentage of university students in its population of any major North American city, except Boston.

Quebec is also home to one of the most affordable education systems in North America. The average yearly tuition paid by Quebec students is the lowest in Canada, and the province offers a number of generous student aid programs. For students looking for English, French, or bilingual education, the system of schools in Quebec include a network of institutions that offer worldclass education in both of Canada’s official languages.
Individuals thinking about coming to study in Quebec should know that the province’s education and immigration opportunities are slightly different to the rest of Canada. Choosing the right combination of education and settlement options, therefore, can save time, money and stress.
