Return to: Faculté Saint-Jean (English)
At Faculté Saint-Jean, the language of academic and social life is French. With the exception of English courses, all our courses and services are offered in French. French is also the language used by the administrators, the professors and the support staff.
All members of the Faculté Saint-Jean community are committed to respecting and fostering the immersive French-language character of the institution, within the bilingual setting offered by the University of Alberta
Library Facilities: The University of Alberta library system makes available to the professors and students of Faculté Saint-Jean a library well stocked with resources in the humanities and social sciences, in the pure sciences, and in education including a collection of pedagogical materials and juvenile literature. Works may be consulted on the premises or may be available for lending. All students also have access to the libraries on the other campus of the University of Alberta.
Academic support: La Centrale offers free peer mentoring services to all Faculté Saint-Jean students who wish to improve their competence in French, English or science.
Counselling: Student Counselling Services offers a wide range of counselling services directed at helping students who are experiencing personal or academic difficulties. These services are offered in French at Faculté Saint-Jean.
Residence: Résidence Saint-Jean is a service which complements the educational experience offered by Faculté Saint-Jean. Students who ask for admission to the residence commit themselves to the active pursuit of the goals of the residence, namely, to live in French in the various environments of Faculté Saint-Jean, to be committed to their studies and to display a spirit of community. The residence is on the Faculté campus and can accommodate approximately 100 students. More detailed information may be obtained at Service des Résidences, 214 Résidence Saint-Jean (780) 466-3824.
Mini-bus service: Faculté Saint-Jean is located at 8406-91 Street (about six kilometers east of North Campus, the main University campus). This does not preclude the possibility of students following courses at Faculté Saint-Jean and in another Faculty of the University, since a mini-bus service is provided between courses.
