    Laval University Undergraduate Admissions

    Laval University offers many undergraduate courses to prospective applicants. The basic admission process for all the courses is the same.

    Once an application is assessed, the applicant is informed of whether they are admitted to take a ‘qualifying course’, through which students acquire language or knowledge tools necessary to excel in the university.

    The minimally required level of French proficiency varies from program to program. The TFI scores will determine whether the applicant is required to take French language classes in addition to other qualifying courses. The university offers French-language services to its students.

    Visa Process for International Students

    After being admitted into the university and receiving the offer letter, students need to procure the appropriate permits and documentation to attend the program. This process can be extensive so it is advised that students begin months in advance. They will need:

    • A valid passport
    • A Québec Acceptance Certificate (CAQ), from the Ministry of immigration for programs longer than 6 months
    • Apply for a study permit and visa
    • Quebec's immigration law requires proof of valid health and hospitalization insurance.

    Admissions at Laval University are highly selective. The education is conducted primarily in French, with some English references. Hence, applicants are encouraged to prove their proficiency in these languages – specifically French, to be considered for admission.
