UQAR Rimouski

With its main campus located on the shores of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, 300 km northeast of Quebec City, the Université du Québec à Rimouski is the northernmost university in Quebec. The geology of Eastern Quebec heavily influences its research areas, such as its distinct focus on marine sciences. UQAR’s internationally renowned oceanography program boasts a $10-million research ship, the Coriolis II. Students come from around the globe to study with noted scientists whose expertise covers a broad spectrum of ocean-related issues. Also noteworthy is a regional development program, which analyzes the evolution of regional communities, and a research area known as “nordicity,” which explores the changing landscape of the Far North. A unique biology program provides broad theoretical and practical training. On the Lévis campus, across the St. Lawrence River from Quebec City, the most popular programs include education, nursing, administration, computer science and accounting. The average class size at UQAR is 30, which makes it easy to get access to personalized services and build relationships with instructors and other students.
