Fast-Track Programs

A people-centred university must implement practical means to recognize each individual as unique. It must ensure that its students feel that they belong in the learning environment. For us, this objective is reflected through the possibility of adapting our programs based on your learning abilities.

If your academic record is particularly excellent and your natural research abilities are outstanding, you could take advantage of certain options to fast track your academic career and even shorten its whole duration by one year. 

Fast-track entry to doctoral studies

Fast-track entry will allow you to undertake doctoral studies before obtaining your master’s degree. To be granted this option, you must have proven your high research potential and your research director must deem your academic performance in the master’s program excellent.

Direct entry to doctoral studies

Direct entry to doctoral studies will allow you to enter a PhD program straight from a bachelor program, without completing a master’s degree.

To take advantage of either of these options, first read the qualification requirements (subparagraph 3.1.3.6) (in French).
