Situated halfway between Montreal and Quebec, close to the St.Lawrence Seaway, l'École internationale de français of the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières (UQTR) has been offering a range of French immersion programs since 1974. There are educational and training programs for students of all ages.
As well, students find themselves in an entirely francophone environment, since the majority of the population in Trois-Rivières speaks exclusively in French. EIF students also benefit from the services and the infrastructures available to the university community.
Our French immersion programs offer a high-quality educational experience with experienced university graduates who teach international French.
Supporting the students in their learning of French as a second language, the ÉIF acts as a stepping stone, thus facilitating the pursuit of students' educational objectives.
Welcome – we look forward to speaking with you in French!
