What is tav college?
TAV is a semi-private college located in the Côte-Des-Neiges-NDG borough of Montreal, Quebec. In 2015, we shifted our focus as a learning institution and began offering pre-university DEC programs to younger demographics in addition to adult education programs.
In 2013, the College built a modern, six-story, 65,000 square-foot building (commonly referred to as the “A” building), which was built and attached to our original four-story campus building at 6333 Decarie Boulevard. The new “A building” was a major milestone for the College as it allowed for four science laboratories, a private gym, two iMac labs, a private café, a mock-daycare laboratory as well as new administration offices.
In 2018, we announced that we would expand once again with the construction of a third building, which is now known as the “C” building. The plans for this ultra-modern and student-focused campus building dedicate the basement-level floor to a study hall and an agora, the ground floor is a massive student lounge center, and the remaining six floors are dedicated to classrooms, a photography and a sound-recording studio, private study rooms, and a rooftop lounge.

What kind of programs does TAV offer?
WHAT IS A DEC PROGRAM?
D.E.C. derives from the French language and is an acronym for diplôme d’études collégiales; diploma of college studies (DCS) in English. All DEC programs allow graduates to advance to university, however, three (3) year DEC programs allow graduates to immediately enter the workforce if they wish.
The college system in Quebec is the mid-point between high school and university and these two-to-three-year programs are unique to the Quebec education system.

WHAT IS AN AEC PROGRAM?
A.E.C. derives from the French language and is an acronym for attestation d’études collégiales; attestation of college studies (ACS) in English. With this certificate, graduates become qualified to enter the Quebec workforce.
These programs are also known as career programs because they train students for specific career training within certain industries. *Note that Quebec high school students are not able to apply to AEC programs right out of high school, see AEC admission requirements here.

WHAT HAVE OUR GRADUATES SAID?
The Health Science program prepared me well for working in a lab setting and studying in a fast-paced field. Through my classes and extracurriculars, I was able to improve my abilities in organization, communication, and time management. I was also able to exercise practical skills within the lab and became comfortable using lab equipment.

I really enjoyed my time at TAV! The smaller-sized classrooms allowed for much more individual attention from the teachers as well as allowed me to more quickly make some great friends that I’ll now have forever.
