    Université du Québec à Chicoutimi

    The Explore program organized in the Saguenay region gives you the chance to have an unforgettable experience in a charming town on the shores of the majestic Saguenay Fjord. The learning process, which draws on the expertise of enthusiastic, dynamic, and dedicated teachers, and focuses on spoken French in small groups, can be tailored to each person’s needs. Learn the language in an entirely French-speaking environment and fall in love with all the breathtaking landscapes, popular festivals, and cultural events the region has to offer. You might even get to stay with a Chicoutimi family, but you’ll need to act fast, as spots are limited! Welcome to Chicouti-Vie!

    Example activities:

    • Kayaking on the magnificent Lac Saint-Jean
    • Whitewater rafting
    • Folk dancing class

    What makes our program special and unique?

    • Vibrant local cultural scene in a totally francophone community
    • Welcoming host families in Chicoutimi make for a complete French immersion experience (limited spots)
    • Outdoor activities right in town or nearby. In Chicoutimi, we see the outdoors as an extension of the university, where there’s something for everyone!
    • University-level courses
