Montreal: a student city

A hub for education, research and art, Montreal is a global hub for health, aerospace, biotechnology, cybersecurity and intelligent cities research. Our students benefit from an extended network of partnerships and collaborations across four major universities, corporations, think tanks and non-governmental organizations. 

An island on the shores of the St. Lawrence river, Montreal’s core surrounds the central park of Mount Royal and spreads outward in a collection of unique, multicultural neighbourhoods and natural beauty connected by a modern, affordable transit system. Montreal is beautiful and bustling throughout the year, famous for its art and culture, cuisine, festivals and diverse population.
