Glossary of University Studies in Québec   

In Québec, our education system is similar to other North American systems, with a few particularities. We use North American terminology to describe our programs of studies and university operations. However, our terminology is not always the same in French and in English. This glossary will help you to understand all these words that may not have the same sense for you (depending which country and continent you come from), or that simply do not exist elsewhere!
