The Cégep André-Laurendeau is a CEGEP pre-university and technical college located at 1111 Lapierre Street in Montreal (LaSalle), Quebec, Canada.

History[edit]

The college traces its origins to the merger of several institutions which became public ones in 1967, when the Quebec system of CEGEPs was created. Cégep André-Laurendeau was named after André Laurendeau, a novelist, playwright, essay writer, journalist and politician in Quebec, Canada.

Programs[edit]

The Province of Quebec awards a Diploma of Collegial Studies for two types of programs: two years of pre-university studies or three years of vocational (technical) studies. The pre-university programs, which take two years to complete, cover the subject matters which roughly correspond to the additional year of high school given elsewhere in Canada in preparation for a chosen field in university. The technical programs, which take three-years to complete, apply to students who wish to pursue a skill trade.

The Cegep offers ten Technical formations:

  • Gestion de commerces (410.D0)
  • Soins infirmiers (180.A0)
  • Techniques de bureautique (412.A0)
  • Techniques de comptabilité et de gestion (410.B0)
