Language component

Language activities are a key element of the integration program since they help you to develop the language skills essential to your smooth integration into the academic and social setting.


The activities are divided into 2 components:

1. LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS (mandatory)
The new language requirements that are part of the conditions for admission to a graduate program as of the fall 2016 semester.
2.  LANGUAGE TRAINING (optional)
  • In an effort to improve the language skills in French and English of all students, optional language training paths are suggested.

Don’t underestimate the importance of French in your integration into the Polytechnique milieu, Québec society and your employability. Also, basic English skills are a major asset that will help you read some course textbooks and access research work in your field. As well, mastering Canada’s two official languages will be a great boost to your career.
