University Courses for Adult Learners

As an adult learner, you are able to participate in courses normally reserved for university students, thanks to a partnership with the French and Francophone Intercultural Studies Program and the French Training Centre at La Cité. French fluency is required (B2-intermdiate or higher). You must complete all coursework but you will not have to write any exams. In addition:

  • University admission is not required
  • No course pre-requisites
  • No final grade or transfer credit will be awarded; a certificate of completion will be available

You will be in the same classroom as regular university students in order to promote discussion and collaboration.

Courses take place in-person at the University of Regina. There is paid parking available.

Each course costs $400.
