TÉLUQ University (French: Université TÉLUQ) is a public French-language distance learning university, part of the Université du Québec system. Originally founded in 1972 as the Telé-université, Université du Québec commission to develop distance education courses, TÉLUQ University is now a full university which offers programs in undergraduate and graduate studies.
