DEC - CIRCUS ARTS
Please note that information regarding the 2021 hearing process will be updated by the end of October 2020.
The college diploma is intended for people from Quebec (16 years and over) or France (17 years and over).
The DEC is a 3-year technical program, sanctioned by the Quebec Ministry of Education and Higher Education, which awards the Diploma of College Studies (DEC 561.D0). It offers a specific program in circus arts and general college training specific to the Quebec school system. It is important to know that during the course, the success of the courses of the general training is obligatory for the continuation of the circus training until the third year.
Students who sign up for this program must understand that they will be attending 2 different institutions within a 10-minute walk of each other. They will therefore have to pay a registration fee for each of these institutions in addition to respecting their registration procedures.
Students will be first and foremost students enrolled at Cégep Limoilou – Campus Québec. They will therefore be entitled to all the services offered by this institution. Cégep Limoilou offers a general education, ie the own theory courses at the college level. Applicants must pay a file opening fee and a registration fee for each session (2 sessions per year for 3 years). Registration fees are the same for French people and Quebeckers.
The ÉCQ provides technical training in circus and some theoretical courses related to the training and profession of circus artist. Applicants will be required to pay a hearing fee (only for the entrance examination) and related program fees each year (3 years duration).
