Welcome Activities

Wondering how you’ll adapt to your new environment? Worried about all that administrative red tape? Relax: we’ve got a warm welcome in store for you. On the program: information sessions on Polytechnique, life in Québec and moving to Montréal, as well as help with housing and administrative details.

It is important to participate in theses activities. Two of the activities are mandatory: Orientation Day for New International Students and Welcome session. We recommend you arrive at least 2 weeks before the start of classes at Fall and at least 1 week before the Winter and the Summer semester in order to get accustomed to Montreal.
