International Students

Are you a student from a foreign country who is a new resident in Quebec, or do you want to pursue your studies in the college network in Quebec? This section will provide you with a range of information that will be useful to you in the academic process. The Service régional d’admission de Montréal (SRAM) website is also a popular tool regarding the Quebec college admissions process and here you will find information about all the CEGEPs in the network.

Foreign or International Student?

Foreign Students: A student from a foreign country, a new resident in Quebec, or a student residing in Quebec but who has done his or her studies in a foreign country.

International Students: A student from a foreign country, not a resident of Quebec and who, for the duration of his or her studies, must obtain a Student Visa. His or her stay in Quebec is therefore temporary, unlike that of foreign students.                                                           

CEGEPs offer regular programs of study as well as continuing education programs (AEC and DEC)
