Université de Montréal
The Université de Montréal is a public francophone university founded in 1878. It is now the largest university in Quebec and the second largest in Canada. It is comprised of thirteen faculties, some sixty departments and two affiliated schools. The University is Quebec's largest research institution and the third largest in Canada. More than 55,000 students are enrolled in its 650 undergraduate and graduate programs and with over 5,000 foreign students enrolled per year, Université de Montréal is considered one of Canada's most cosmopolitan universities. It is dedicated to its international mission as one of the top universities in the French-speaking world.
The exchange agreement between King's and the Université de Montréal allows for up to 5 Full Year Equivalent (FYE) places for each institution. This equates to 5 students going for a full academic year OR 10 students for a single semester OR a mixture of the two.
Important: Final decision on students' study abroad application to their host institution rests entirely with that host institution. Students must also meet their departments’ academic requirements to obtain final departmental approval to study abroad. It is usually at least a 60% average prior to departure, however this can vary amongst departments. Students should double check with their Study Abroad Tutor if they are unsure of their academic requirements.
French students will need to have obtained at least 65% in F120 to be considered for this university.
King’s students that wish to study abroad at this institution should check the ‘Undergraduate options by department’ page to see if this institution is indeed an option for them.
Estimated living costs
Please see here for current estimated living costs, but actual expenses may vary depending on student lifestyle. The cost of travel to and from the country is not included in these estimates.
A reminder that King's students on exchange are not required to pay tuition fees to the host university, but you may incur administrative and/or orientation fees at the host. There may also be mandatory insurance costs, and transcripts may incur a fee.
Please also note that, if required, student visas often require applicants to supply evidence of financial support throughout the duration of the study abroad programme. Sometimes this will mean showing financial evidence for a specific amount, so please pay attention to the advice on this from the host institution.
