Why study in montreal?

A city unlike anywhere else in the world.

Montreal is the second largest city in Canada and second largest French speaking city in the world. It is a very safe cosmopolitan and multicultural city with a population of 1,700,000. Two thirds are francophone, one-sixth Anglophone and the remainder is made up of mainly Italian, Arabic, Spanish, Creole, Chinese, Greek, Portuguese, Vietnamese. This dynamic mix of cultures leads to some of the best food and restaurants in the world at your fingertips. Montreal now has the world’s second-highest proportion of people employed in creative industries (after London). The National Film Board of Canada has become a world leader in virtual reality and interactive films, picking up six Webby Awards for innovation in 2016. Montreal is also the third-largest centre in the world for video game production. read what The Guardian had to say in May 2016


A city of students

With four universities, seven other degree-awarding educational institutions, and twelve CEGEPS in an 8-kilometer radius, Montreal has the highest concentration of post secondary students of all cities in North America (4,38 students per 100 residents). 25% of all university graduates in North America graduate from Montreal universities. At least 35,000 foreign students live in Montreal at any given moment. Montreal is used to making students feel welcome.


A city in the heart of North America

Montréal is situated less than one-hour drive from the USA and about an hour and a half flight from Toronto, New York City or Boston. With its multicultural and often bilingual population it is not uncommon to hear people using two or more languages in the same conversation. If you don’t already know how to speak French, it is the perfect opportunity to learn another language.


A destination that is plugged directly into the world of audio

The abundance of four season festivals in Montreal offers tons of opportunities. The city is home to many internationally recognized live cultural and music festivals (Montreal Jazz Fest, Nuits D’Afrique, Pop Montreal, Montreal Fringe Festival, various Blues festivals, Igloo Fest etc.) as well as one of the world’s largest cultural enterprises, the Cirque du Soleil.


A city with an entrepreneurial spirit and opportunity

Montreal has a relatively low unemployment rate compared to many other countries in the world and the age demographics tend to favour young professionals with a better chance of employment.


A city with a low cost of living

Montreal is known for its general low cost of living compared to most major cities. Inexpensive lodgings can be easily found. For example a 2½ (living room/kitchenette, bedroom and bathroom) can cost as low as $500/mth. Being a student town, roommates can be found online costing one as low as $250/mth for a room.


The possibility of work

For foreign students, your Student Visa will allow you to work here to help pay for your studies. Once graduated you can get a Post Diploma Work Permit for one year to allow you time to integrate into the Canadian professional milieu.

You can also apply with a mature student status. We will need a copy of your grades and diploma from your educational institution. To be admitted in either the English or French program, you must be able to speak one or the other language competently.
