Students who have completed 12 years of education outside of Quebec will now be able to attend a four-year bachelor’s degree in one of the fourteen scientific programs at the University of Sherbrooke. This course is offered for the first time and will combine preparatory and disciplinary educational activities.
In order to obtain a diploma, students will have to take as many courses as those for a regular three-year matriculation exam in addition to preparatory courses, over a period of 4 years.
Fourteen programs offered in the fields of science: Health Biochemistry, Biology, Molecular and Cellular Biology, Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Ecology, Computer Science, Business Informatics, Mathematics, Microbiology, Pharmacology, Physics, Multimedia and Video Game Sciences, and Computer Science of Quantum Information.
Advantages this time? As non-Quebec students have twelve years of schooling, not thirteen like CEGEP students, they first had to enroll in a preparatory certificate. For people coming from abroad, the immigration procedures were tedious and had to be done twice, first for the certificate and then for the matriculation. This allows French-speaking Canadians outside of Quebec faster access to certain programs not offered in their province.
UdeS offers an outstanding study environment for students from here and elsewhere, emphasizes Nancy Dumais, vice dean for teaching and inclusion. Vibrant campus life, accessibility of faculty and staff, and small groups encourage exchange. This proximity helps support student success and provides warm and personalized support.
Enrollment in this course will be offered now for the August 2024 class.
