Why choose our college for your study project in Canada?

Quebec provides students with an efficient and unique college system that leads to a State diploma whose quality is recognized: the College Diploma or DEC.

Depending on your study project, you can get ready for university after two years of pre-university studies or find a job after three years of technical studies that will help you acquire strong skills. Studying in Quebec also means evolving in a warm and welcoming society and living in an open and safe environment.

Choosing our College is being part of the only bilingual establishment in Outaouais; all of our study programs are offered in French and English. Each year, many students from outside of Canada join Collège Universel’s great community.

You allow our private international institution to build a beautiful multicultural mosaic fostering openness to others and the world. The College is renowned among foreign students for offering high quality training programs, a friendly living environment and all the resources needed to make your integration in Quebec a success.

Being part of our College is studying in Outaouais, in the greater National Capital Region, close to Ottawa and Ontario. You will get to live in the beautiful city of Gatineau, which has managed to stand out from other Quebec and Canadian cities through its Francophone character, its high level of bilingualism and its population that is strongly impregnated by the multiple cultures that shape it.
