About us

The Université de Montréa, or the University of Montreal, is a public research university in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, which is taught in French. The main campus of the institution is located on the northern slope of Mount Royal, in the Outremont and Côte-des-Neiges neighbourhoods. The Polytechnique Montréal (School of Engineering; originally the École Polytechnique de Montréal) and HEC Montréal are two affiliated schools with thirteen faculties, over sixty departments, and two affiliated schools (School of Business). 

It has over 650 undergraduate and graduate programmes to choose from, including 71 PhD programmes.

In 1878, the institution was established as a satellite campus of the Université Laval. After receiving a papal charter in 1919 and a provincial charter in 1920, it became an independent institution. In 1942, the Université de Montréal relocated from Montreal's Quartier Latin to its current Mount Royal location. With the passage of a new provincial charter in 1967, it became a secular institution.

The university has 34,335 undergraduate and 11,925 post-graduate students and is co-educational. Alumni and former students can be found all around Canada and the world, with famous alumni working in government, academia, and businesses. Depending on a student's citizenship, they may also be eligible for financial assistance from the Student Financial Assistance program administered by the provincial Ministry of Education, Recreation and Sports and/or Canada Student Loans and Grants administered by the federal and provincial governments.
