Experience Quebec City


Quebec city

Founded in 1608, Quebec City is a perfect learning abroad destination. With its French-speaking population, its beautiful historic city surrounded by the original ramparts, and its château perched on a cliff-top overlooking the lower town and river valley, visitors may think they are in a European city.

Today, Quebec City is a cultural hub in Canada and North America and provides an incredible canvas for your study abroad programme. Below are some experiences that BV Study Abroad has curated for partner universities.


Culture and Arts in Quebec City

Humanities 101

The University of South Florida, Tampa, chose Quebec City as its destination for its Humanities programme with a focus on Art and Culture. They experience cultural activities in and around the city, such as museum visits, architectural tours, a circus school workshop, watching films of local artists, Quebec cooking class, and much more. 

Public Health in Canada

The Quebec Context

Not only can faculty and students enjoy the incredible culture, history and food of this 410 year-old city, they can also study a variety of academic disciplines to complement their home classes.

This is the case for the University of South Florida’s Department of Public Health. During this one-week programme in March, they meet with local professionals and experts, learn about Canada’s universal healthcare system, and discuss the strategies to tackle important issues in healthcare.

As an added bonus, by coming in March, they will enjoy the winter activities such as a visit to the famous ice hotel, winter sliding, a sugar shack experience and much more.

Quebec City is the perfect backdrop in which to create your abroad experience.

Let’s meet to discuss!

Design Sprint

Every entrepreneur and leader asks the same question: “How can I create better products faster?” This 6-day course was offered in Quebec City to create an intense, hands-on experience in creating products at a fast pace.

It is modeled after a workshop created by Google Ventures (GV) to help the companies succeed. GV describes the method as “a greatest hits of business strategy, innovation, behavior science, design thinking, and more—packaged into a battle-tested process that any team can use.”

During the course, participants went through the entire process and learned skills required to  meet with real customers, uncover a problem they experience, evaluate potential solutions, prototype and test those solutions. Then, in the end, to pitch their end product to stakeholders. 

Quebec City offers an incredible opportunity to learn these skills, all in a beautiful environment that adds an international and cultural context unmatched in North America.

3D Sculpting

Graphic Designers, Illustrators, and Artists increasingly incorporate 3D technology to open up new possibilities of creativity within their traditional fields. This programme bridges the gap between these disciplines. With 3D software like ZBrush, your students will learn to build realistic and life-like characters. 

The course is built around traditional sculpting techniques. You will be able to create your own objects from a picture or sketch reference taken in beautiful Old Québec City.
