Program OverviewUQAM

The Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) is a public French-language university of international influence. It has approximately 40,000 students enrolled and is a top, urban, research institution located  in the heart of downtown Montreal.  To facilitate exchanges of researchers and travel for students, the University has increased its bilateral and multilateral agreements regarding training, research and the creative arts. Every year, it welcomes over 2,200 foreign students from 80 countries.

Hear from previous exchange students. Adam, marketing major, gives his testimonial here.

Montréal, population 3,360,000, is framed by Mont Royal and the St. Lawrence River. What was initially a simple missionary village, three and a half centuries later, has burgeoned into the world's largest inland port, the home of Canada's first banks and trading companies, the world's second-largest French-speaking city, and a metropolis of international repute. Given its prime location - only 37 miles (60 km) from the U.S. border - Montréal is an increasingly important hub of North American trade.

Montréal is a bilingual, multicultural society, and although its French influence is the focus of much controversy within Canada, it's this very flavor that's attractive to visitors. Montréal is a city renowned for its vibrant nightlife, love of sports, world-class museums, orchestras, shopping and year-round festivals. It is easy to get most everywhere on the metro and by foot.

Passports and Visas

A valid passport is essential to your international travel and study abroad. If you are planning to travel abroad, its best to apply for a passport now as processing times may vary. Please see the State Department's passport page for more information.

In order to obtain country-specific visa instructions and resources, refer to your host country’s embassy web page. One way to access visa information is the US Department of State’s country information page  

UC International is happy to guide UC faculty, staff and students to possible resources about visas for study abroad. Although, applying for the necessary visa for travel is the responsibility of the individual UC traveler. Entry requirements change frequently and we advise you to pay close attention to consular updates. It is your responsibility to knowing and addressing the requirements for your host study abroad destination.

Applying for a visa can be a complicated process. Some UC travelers choose to third party to assist with this process, for example Travisa or A Briggs (mention UC for a possible discount).
