According to a 1978 agreement, france and Québec could enjoy equal rights to pursue their studies on both sides of the Atlantic. Things will change starting this autumn. Explanations with Olivier Marcil, vice-principal of McGill university.
What is the reason for this revision of the agreement franco-québécois concerning tuition and fees?
This revision is mainly the result of the observation of the extreme mobility of the French compared to that of Quebecers. For a student from quebec who will do his studies in France, ten French who come to Quebec! France is the only nation that has a treatment as favourable, and she enjoys it thoroughly. The French students in Quebec will now have to pay, as soon as the new school year in September 2015, the same amount as those in other canadian provinces, is 6600 canadian dollars per year (about 4500 euros) and not the same amount as the foreign students.
note that this measure only applies to new enrollees in the first cycle. The French already registered in a québec university or those who arrive at the master's level are not affected and can continue their education at the same rate as québec students, i.e. around 2000 canadian dollars per year. It should be understood that it is the provincial government that subsidizes the universities to provide this annual tariff of 6600 dollars. Students from other countries pay, on the other hand, charges an annual tuition ranging from $ 15,000 to $ 35,000 depending on the studies chosen.Your support is essential.

This is a way to restrict the number of French students in quebec universities?
Not at all. We believe, moreover, that this tariff amendment will have no impact on the number of entries of French students. The rate of 6600 dollars is still very competitive to study in one of the Quebec universities that rank globally very well on the international market. McGill university, one of the 50 most prestigious in the world, has also supported very clearly this decision.
