Continuing education and adult education
Social integration and socio-professional integration training are also offered. This training leads to a certificate in socioprofessional integration for adults or a certificate in a semi-skilled trade. School boards, CEGEPs and universities also offer evening courses and part-time training programs.
Thanks to its great flexibility, online education is an expanding sector at the secondary, college and university levels.
Financial assistance for studies
The government of Québec offers financial assistance to individuals pursuing post-secondary studies. The amount of assistance provided is generally based on your family situation, expenses related to pursuing your studies, any financial contributions you may receive and your income earned in the previous year. This assistance is paid in the form of a loan, supplemented by a bursary when your financial needs are greater than the loan granted. If you receive a loan, you must gradually pay it back when you have completed your studies. For the duration of your full-time studies, the government of Québec pays the interest on your loan. Payment of this interest becomes your responsibility when you finish your full-time studies. You do not have to repay a bursary.
Equivalence and recognition of competencies
Comparative evaluation for studies done outside Québec
The Évaluation comparative des études effectuées hors du Québec is a document that establishes a general comparison between two official education systems. This evaluation could be useful for job searches, to apply for admission to a study program or to apply for membership in certain regulatory bodies. It provides a description of your diplomas, transcripts and studies completed in an education system recognized by the authorities of a country or province other than Québec.
