The Québec Difference: Well connected to both the US and Europe, Québec is truly an international destination and a great place to learn a language or pursue academic studies.
The Inside Scoop: Québec’s Ministère de l’Enseignement supérieur, de la Recherche, et de la Science (the ministry responsible for higher education) makes studying in the province easy. International students are offered a wealth of scholarship opportunities and perks, such as exemptions from higher tuition rates and the Québec Merit Fellowship Program (a unique scholarship fund for distinguished foreign students). The diverse province welcomes approximately 30,000 international students from 160 countries every year to hundreds of programs in French and English.
