The University of Quebec in Montreal
The University of Quebec in Montreal is a public francophone university of international repute. Most academic activity takes place at the central campus located in the downtown core of the city, in addition to four other campuses and a distance learning program (TELUQ). UQAM offers over 300 programs of study at both the undergraduate and graduate levels in either the school of management or one of the six faculties : arts, communication, political science and law, science, education, and humanities. It is regarded as one of the major research centres in Canada with particular strengths in the humanities, natural sciences, health sciences and fine arts. Researchers are grouped into numerous research groups, centres and chairs, as well as six interdisciplinary institutes. In all of these areas, UQAM’s mission is to promote the exchange of knowledge between researchers and students. To this end, it is continually increasing the number of affiliations with institutions abroad. Every year, it welcomes more than 2200 students from 80 different countries.
UQAM`s 40 000 students, not to mention the additional 20 000 signed up for the TELUQ, benefit from a modern, urban campus which includes laboratories, workshops, studios, a sports complex, and very popular cultural venues.
After more than 40 years in existence, training the next generation of researchers and professionals, UQAM remains faithful to its mission of democratising access to high quality education in French and fostering creativity in cultural, social and scientific spheres of activity.
