Programmes of Study - Royal Military College Saint-Jean

RMC Saint-Jean ensures officer cadets and naval cadets a seamless transition from high school to university by providing two college-level programmes in Social Science and Science and providing a university programme in International Studies. This multidisciplinary programme aims at preparing officer cadets and naval cadets of some occupations for the responsibilities awaiting them in their career in the CAF, where they will have the opportunity to serve at the international level and work in a variety of culturally diverse environments.

The academic programmes offered at RMC Saint-Jean are recognized by the Department of Education of the Province of Quebec and lead to a diploma of college studies if they do not fail courses during those four sessions. These programmes are intended for high school graduates and prepare them for continued studies at RMC in Kingston, Ontario or RMC Saint-Jean should they choose the International Studies programme.

Students who have successfully completed a first year of college studies in Quebec (CEGEP 1) and those from outside Quebec who hold a high school diploma (Grade 12 with superior results) are usually admitted in First Year in one or the other CMC for a one-year programme in Science or Social Science before they move to university level. This year of study is equivalent to the first year university programmes offered by RMC.
