Study in French! Integrated French Immersion Program At Sainte-Anne you can earn a degree and perfect your French at the same time. The Integrated French Immersion Option allows you to count French credits towards your degree and graduate with no delay. This option is available in almost all of our programs. How does it work? If you have an intermediate level of French (about DELF levels B1 or B2), you can register into any qualifying program. If you’re a beginner, ask your enrolment advisor about our Spring and Summer French Immersion sessions, where you can improve your French and earn university credits. You could qualify to receive a scholarship of at least $3000 for choosing to study in French (see below). While completing your chosen program, you will take courses specifically designed to improve your French. These courses are credited towards your degree, and don’t add any additional time to your program. You’ll live in a French-only residence (trust us, it’s the best way to learn), where you’ll meet francophone friends who will help you pick up informal, everyday uses for your new language skills. Once you graduate, we guarantee you’ll get a job. Did you know? Other than English, French is the only language widely spoken and taught on all five continents. In the last five years, 43% of Canadian federal public service positions were bilingual. 95% of Canadians agree that speaking both French and English is an advantage on the job market.
