Applying for admission to an institution

Effective June 30, 2017, foreign students wishing to study in Québec in a training program of a duration of more than 6 months must be admitted to or enrolled in a designated learning institution, that is, an institution recognized by the Ministère de l'Éducation et de l'Enseignement supérieur or another Québec government ministry, in order to obtain a Québec Acceptance Certificate (CAQ), and a study permit from the federal government.

Before submitting your application, consult the list of designated learning institutions.

If the institution you have chosen is not on this list, it will not be possible for you to study there as a foreign student. Note that the Ministère does not refund processing fees for a CAQ, even in the case of a refusal.

To submit an application for admission, you must first choose an educational institution and a program of study.

Before you make your final choice, take the time to visit the websites of Québec’s various educational institutions. You should also familiarize yourself with the deadlines and procedures for submitting an application for admission.
