EduCativ Posted August 1, 2020 Share Posted August 1, 2020 Since its establishment in 1969, Université du Québec à Rimouski (UQAR) has granted over 50,000 diplomas. In addition to its Lévis and Rimouski campuses, UQAR offers academic training throughout eastern Quebec, including the Chaudière-Appalaches, Gaspésie-Iles-de-la-Madeleine, Haute-Côte-Nord, and Manicouagan. It also has permanent offices in Gaspé and Rivière-du-Loup. UQAR is part of the Université du Québec network, the largest university network in Canada, with over 100,000 students. UQAR welcomes about 7,000 new students every year, including about 550 international students from over 45 countries. More critical figures about UQAR (in French). Choosing UQAR is a choice for a university where student success is a priority. Recognized for the outstanding academic mentorship offered by professors and lecturers, UQAR provides a learning environment that fosters community, social, and sporting initiatives and learning, and supports student development. Forget the large auditoriums packed with 100, 200, and up to 500 students! The average class size of 30 students facilitates learning and the development of skills in demand on the labor market through teamwork with a focus on real-life issues. Also, on a human scale, groups support the integration of new students and foster academic success. According to the last Canada-wide survey of Master's and Ph.D. students, UQAR distinguishes itself from other Canadian universities by the high quality of education offered, the opportunities provided to students to publish and present their research, the general assessment of the university, and students' general satisfaction level. UQAR offers a highly valued service, the Centre d'aide à la réussite (CAR) (achievement support center), accessible to graduate and undergraduate students experiencing temporary difficulties during their studies and wishing to improve their skills. The CAR oversees academic performance as a preventive measure to ensure every student the best chances of success. Owing to its privileged geographic location, UQAR enables students to explore and study exceptional natural environments that are a stone's throw away from the campuses. While maintaining a primary focus on academic achievement, the training programs offered by UQAR stand out for their excellence and distinctive nature. UQAR offers over 160 undergraduate to doctoral-level training programs in administration, biology, environmental and bioresource chemistry, regional development, education, ethics, engineering, geography, history, computer science, literature and creative writing, oceanography, psychosociology, accounting, nursing, and social work. A large number of programs include a significant portion of hands-on fieldwork and on-the-job training. Also, UQAR offers several distances and e-learning programs to allow students to enhance their skills in their setting. Research at UQAR stands out among universities for its interdisciplinary approach. Marine science, regional development, and Nordicity are areas of research excellence that characterize several UQAR programs. Research in engineering, education, literature, heritage, management science, and health science has boomed in recent years.
