Proud of its campuses located in Edmundston, Moncton and Shippagan, the Université de Moncton is the largest entirely French-language Canadian university outside of Quebec. Home to eight faculties and 37 research centers, chairs and institutes, the Université de Moncton is a living environment where freedom of expression and autonomy ensure the full development of its 5,039 students.

Founded in 1963, the establishment now has more than 360 professors and offers nearly 200 three-cycle programs in various disciplines. In most programs, the first two years are offered at all three campuses, with the remaining years taking place at the Moncton campus.

The Université de Moncton firmly believes that the quality of training rests on a solid foundation, academically and practical learning in the internship environment. By opting for the cooperative plan, students have the chance to do more than one internship during their studies in order to gain professional experience.

The Université de Moncton offers a variety of online courses, whether in the fields of business administration, information management, health, forestry and more. It also offers online programs such as the Certificate in Business Information Security Management, the Master of Business Administration and the Master of Education. Home to a research infrastructure of growing importance, the Université de Moncton has developed major research axes in Acadian studies and minority communities, health, the environment, information and communication technologies, as well as optics and advanced materials.

Majors

One core strength of the university is the faculty of engineering, where a full suite of engineering programs are offered, including civil, electrical, environmental, industrial, and mechanical engineering programs. The mechanical engineering department offers several concentrations, including automotive engineering – this fits in well with two of Windsor’s largest employers, Chrysler and Ford Motors. Would-be pilots will love the Aeronautics Leadership program – the academic education is complemented by flight training offered by the college’s partner, Journey Air, at nearby Windsor International Airport, located 12km from the campus.

However, the UWindsor offers programs at undergraduate and graduate levels in many other fields other than engineering. Popular options include business administration, computer science, international relations, criminology, and many more. Many of the Bachelor’s degrees include a Co-Op option, making Windsor an excellent base for those African students wishing to gain professional experience in combination with a high-quality university education.

Master’s level programs are extremely affordable by both Canadian and international standards. The AACSB-accredited MBA and the LLM (Master of Law) programs represent particularly good value for money. 

African students have access to all programs, though there are a limited number of places for international students on Windsor’s education and nursing programs.
