Science DEC students working together in science lab TAV College This program is well accommodated for Francophones and bilingual students who would like increased exposure to the study of science in English. In the Science DEC program, they will have the option of doing their general education in French. This provides students with a solid foundation for future university studies in English while still allowing them to do their general education in French. Moreover, in conjunction with the pedagogical development in Quebec universities, students in the program can submit their homework and do their exams in the language of their choice.


At TAV we believe that challenging our students in the classroom is as important as challenging them in the lab. Our two-year pre-university Science DEC Program allows the students to maximize their learning experience by including many major lab components and integrative activities.
