A Journey Designed for You

Do you have a taste for exploration and discovery of the unknown? What if you jumped on board a journey that could take you there now?

Sure, there are many known roads ahead, but you can choose the less conventional path. One that is close to home, yet unexpectedly ripe with culture and opportunity. If you are a serious student with an open mind and a taste for adventure, the Integrated Path could be for you.

The top-ranking Université de Montréal offers a new program designed for international students with intermediate French skills. The Integrated Path is a 4-year program that provides guidance and support for non-native French speaking students who wish to study in one of Université de Montréal’s 35 undergraduate programs. By providing the tools needed to succeed at UdeM, the Integrated Path helps international students step outside of their comfort zone to pursue a unique and international university experience.

This four-year path was specially created to help non-francophone international students succeed in their university studies in one of the 35 participating undergraduate programs.
