Université de Montréal

Established in 1878, Université de Montréal, with its affiliate engineering and business schools, Polytechnique Montréal and HEC Montréal, is the largest university in Quebec and the second largest    in Canada. With more than 65,000 students from Canada and around the world, UdeM awards more than 13,000 diplomas every year. Deeply rooted in Montreal and dedicated to its international mission, UdeM is the top-ranking comprehensive French-speaking university in the world and included in the 1st percentile of the world’s best universities. With more than $500 million in research funding each year, it is also the second-most active Canadian university in terms of volume of research activities.

Research and Learning Environment
With 16 faculties and 80 departments and schools, Université de Montréal offers programs in almost all academic fields, from music to physics and architecture, and is the only Quebec university offering the full range of disciplines in health sciences. Its network of 37 partner hospitals and health centres is one of the strongest clinical divisions in the country. The UdeM  brings  together  2,700  professors    and researchers, 465 research units, and one of Canada’s largest student bodies at the master’s and doctoral levels. It enjoys an outstanding reputation in the international scientific community.

International Engagement
Montreal is a blend of North America and Europe, a safe metropolis built on two major cultures – French and English – with an international outlook and a multicultural reality. The Université de Montréal’s partnership agreements with institutions in 65 different countries involving 550 institutions worldwide illustrates this perfectly, along with the fact that more than half our academics’ publications are co- authored with one or several international colleagues. At UdeM, expanding research and training networks is a priority, and the proximity of faculty members and students is of the utmost importance.
