Sherbrooke is a university that gives its students a chance to see the world, offering international opportunities so they can gain a deeper understanding of an increasingly interconnected planet—it has more than 700 agreements with universities in 26 countries. Sherbrooke also emphasizes a practical approach to learning, with small class sizes, close relationships between professors and students, and a massive co-op program that provides up to 4,000 placements each year. “Sherbrooke offers an exceptional environment for pursuing university studies. Renowned for its methods of learning, our university is one of the most appreciated in Canada by its students,” says rector Pierre Cossette. When students need a break, a green oasis with a waterfall is at the heart of the main campus, and nearby Mont-Bellevue Park offers activities such as skiing and snowshoeing. The university has two satellite campuses: the Sherbrooke Health Campus, home to a 400-bed hospital, pharmacology institute and clinical research centre; and the Longueuil campus, which offers more than 80 continuing-education programs in fields such as administration, education, engineering and health sciences. In addition, Sherbrooke offers its medical program in Saguenay and Moncton through partnerships with the Université du Québec à Chicoutimi and the Université de Moncton.
