Conditions and procedure

Eligibles diplomas

Québec diplomas eligible under the PEQ are:

  • a bachelor’s degree (university undergraduate);
  • a master’s degree (and an MBA);
  • a doctorate;
  • a Diplôme d’études collégiales techniques (DEC – diploma of college studies, technical training);
  • a Diplôme d’études professionnelles (DEP – diploma of vocational studies) attesting to 1800 hours of study or more;
  • a Diplôme d’études professionnelles (DEP – diploma of vocational studies) followed by an attestation de spécialisation professionnelle (ASP – attestation of vocational specialization) attesting to a minimum of 1800 hours of continuing education and leading to a particular trade.

 

  USEFUL INFORMATION  

The ASP attests to the specialization of a student in an area of training that is more specialized than the one represented by a DEP. It attests to training that offers upgrading or specialization in a particular trade.

The ASP programs are developed by the Ministère de l’Éducation, de l’Enseignement supérieur et de la Recherche. For more information, consult the Inforoute de la formation professionnelle et technique.

 
     

 

To be eligible, these diplomas must have been:

  • obtained during the 36 months preceding submission of the application for a Certificat de sélection du Québec;
  • issued by a Québec university or an educational institution recognized by the Ministère de l’Éducation, de l’Enseignement supérieur et de la Recherche;
  • obtained following a full-time study program in a Québec institution located in Québec.

 

You are not eligible for the PEQ if:

  • you hold any other diploma than those cited above (e.g., Attestation of Vocational Studies, Attestation of College Studies, Graduate Diploma in Specialized Studies, post-doctorate);
  • you submit two diplomas of vocational studies (DEPs) for which the duration of each program is less than 1800 hours;
  • you submit a diploma of vocational studies  (DEP - double program) for which the duration of each of these programs is less than 1800 hours;
  • you have not lived in Québec for at least half the duration of your study program.
