Teaching at Laval University is done in French. Fluency in written and spoken French is therefore essential.
Although knowledge of French and English is not an admission requirement, successful completion of this study program is linked to the student's ability to read and understand texts in French and English. . Students who do not have sufficient command of these languages could experience difficulties in their studies. The student must ensure that he has a good understanding of French and English and, if necessary, take measures to develop his language skills during the training (for example at the School of Languages of the University Laval ). In the event of significant deficiencies, the program management can impose corrective measures.
Before applying for admission, the candidate must contact one of the professors of the program. The program director can only admit a candidate if a professor has agreed to supervise his research work.
Meeting the admission requirements does not automatically result in the admission of a candidate. Each request is studied by the program director who takes into account, in its assessment, the candidate's previous preparation, his academic record, his aptitude for research and his entire file, as well as the resources of the department. .
