A variety of flexible continuums

The Faculty of Education annually makes available graduate programs that are known for their quality and accessibility. Thanks to a proposed course of flexible duration (micro program, DESS, master’s degree, etc.), you have all the tools to find the program that suits you, and maybe even be spoiled for choice. The micrograms allow you to refine your knowledge, while the DESS and master’s degrees provide an opportunity to develop practice and in-depth knowledge. These programs are aimed at candidates with a protean profile, especially international and Canadian students with or without experience in the field. Sensitive to everyone’s realities, various courses are taught under modalities, including the face-to-face, hybrid or online format. Don’t wait any longer and discover the potential of these many nested programs:

But what exactly is a “nested” program?

First, although the name is confusing, you should know that nesting programs have absolutely nothing to do with “storks”. That said, the image of the bird carrying the child to get from one point to another can nevertheless help to understand the principle; this is based on a logic of intertwining – a bit like a Russian doll. Basically, the short programs of a continuum are designed to be an integral part of the structure of the long programs of the same continuum, that is, the microprogram courses in remedial education are included in the DESS in remedial education. The advantage: the achievements followed in the context of a short program are easily transferable to the course of its long counterparts. It is therefore quite possible to acquire new passions and specializations by enrolling in a second cycle microgram and then, depending on your needs and interests, progressing to the DESS or the master’s degree. Ultimately, the aim of the nested training system is to make higher education accessible to everyone by promoting enriching and, above all, adaptable academic pathways.
