Cégep de Saint-Laurent

The Saint-Laurent Cegep stands out in several respects: it is the only French-language college in an urban setting established on a real campus. With a population of approximately 3,500 students in regular education and 1,500 students in continuing education, it offers several opportunities for learning and activities while maintaining a human scale. In addition, the presence of the arts on campus and the specializations in sciences attract students who are creative, mobilized and with a diversified profile. Research in science, and more particularly in the field of water, as well as creativity and innovation in arts programs are identified as the Cegep’s historical niches.
