Dawson College was founded in 1969 when it received a charter to set up the first English-speaking College of General and Professional Education. This is a special type of education which exists only in Quebec. Students must complete a six-year primary school and move on to a five-year secondary education. At grade 11 they apply for CEGEP, which serves as a preparatory ground for university education and for career training. The college began with about 111 teachers and 1,655 students. Being the biggest of the CEGEP network, Dawson College has grown to have more than 10,000 day and night students in over 30 disciplines. So far, the institution has graduated over 70,000 people since 1969.

FIRST CHOICE SCIENCE

First Choice Science is the opportunity the college gives to students who chose the school as their first choice university. Because of the limited slots, students write a competitive exam from which the best are selected and offered admission.

NEW SCHOOL

At Dawson, learning can take a very humanistic approach, where students gather in small groups to study English and humanities.

REFLECTION

Students can compete in double-credit courses such as English, French, History and Humanities. This method takes the form of a seminar in which the teacher leads the discussions.
