Entrance Requirements –
Students should have a good
practical knowledge of farming under eastern Canadian conditions. One year of
experience is recommended, but under special conditions a four-month summer
season is acceptable.
The minimum academic
entrance requirements are a Quebec High School Leaving Certificate (Secondary
V), or its equivalent and any other academic requirement set by the Ministère de l'Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport (MELS).
All candidates for admission
must make arrangements to come to the Macdonald campus for an interview prior
to admission to the program.
Admission to this program is
only in the Fall semester.
We strongly encourage
incoming students to acquire their driver’s permit (both for cars
and farm equipment) before coming to Macdonald campus. This is
first for safety reasons, given that students work with farm equipment (Soil
Preparation) very early on as they arrive at Macdonald. As well, most farmers
require their employees and trainees (stagiaires) to drive and possess the
appropriate driver’s license.
