We explain on this page the levels of education and duration of studies in Québec. You will also find the calendar of semesters and of faculties.
Most course-based bachelor's and master's degrees require a functional knowledge of the French language (level B2 or C1). If you have not taken an international French test or if the particular faculty requests it, you can take the Université de Sherbrooke's French placement test (institutional French test) online free of charge. Be sure to check the language requirements specific to your program of choice on its official Web page (USherbrooke.ca/admission/).
Make sure you have the degree or the number of years of schooling required for the particular program. You can click the Admission et exigences tab on the program's official Web page to find out the specific admission requirements.
The co-operative stream, offered in many programs, allows for alternating terms of study and paid internships up to a maximum of 3 to 5 internships. Each internship allows you to earn an average of C$9000. In addition, the University assists you in preparing for these internships and helps you find them. Consult the list of programs offering the co-op stream.
The process for starting a research project varies according to program and faculty. In many cases, you must first obtain the approval of a research professor before applying for admission. Consult the procedures on our research page (en français) or visit your faculty's website and take a look at the research tab.
The Université de Sherbrooke also offers postdoctoral fellowships. For more information, visit the Research, Partnerships and Entrepreneurship Services Web site (en français).
