Students may choose to study in English, in French or in both languages. Regional campuses offer courses taught in several other languages, including, Spanish, German and Arabic.

Students are also responsible for their own meals.

The university provides housing at the regional campuses.

Passports need to be valid for at least six months past the program's end date. The CIE Study Abroad office strongly recommends that you expedite your passport application.
