The Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières is located halfway between Montréal and Québec (an hour and a half's drive in either direction from Trois-Rivières)
One of the university's most attractive features is its relaxed, informal atmosphere where students and professors work closely together during teaching and research activities.
The university offers its 12,000 students a quiet, pleasant environment including a large campus with plenty of green open spaces. It also assures them a first-rate education through the dedication and specialized skills of the professors and the availability of advanced techniques. At UQTR, learning and research involve the same hard work as anywhere else - but under far more pleasant conditions.
For the students who don't speak French, it is recommended that they register at the École Internationale de Français, a French immersion school of the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières. A short class with the ÉIF will help them to integrate into their other classes.
