THE START OF THE SCHOOL YEAR

The Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue is showing its creativity in organizing a stimulating and festive start to the academic year in this exceptional context for the 2020 fall session.

In this exceptional period during which we must limit contacts, a special program is offered to you and offers several activities and events to celebrate the start of the school year!

The Fall 2020 Student Kit is now available on Symbiose. It contains a wealth of useful information, including the List of essentials for an optimal start to the school year, as well as various tools and strategies that will make your life as a student easier.
