Looking for professional vocational higher education?

Want to pursue your studies in Canada?

Why not consider Quebec’s cégeps. Cégep is a French acronym that stands for Collège d'enseignement général et professionnel, known in English as a general and vocational college


In three years, you could complete an officially recognized degree (DCS) in one of the many programs open to international students. Find your fit from over 85 programs. With practical skills directly related to the labour market’s needs, a DCS provides access to employment but can also lead to university studies in the same field as well.

Cégeps also offer pre-university programs that lead to further studies at the university level. International students are eligible for these programs after successfully completing 11 years of schooling, whether or not they already hold a diploma leading to higher education.


SRAM handles applications for admissions to its 32 member cégeps located across nine of Quebec’s regions including the major international city of Montreal, but also Outaouais, the Laurentides, Lanaudière, Mauricie, Montérégie, the Eastern Townships, Central Québec and Abitibi-Témiscamingue. Each of these regions offers different socio-economic and environmental characteristics that may impact your cégep choice. SRAM provides guidance through the application process. We receive all your documents to complete your application and send your file to your chosen cégep for them to decide on your admission.
