Université Laval and the Ecole de langues de I'Universite Laval-L'ELUL (School of Languages)Laval University flags
Located in the heart of Quebec's historical capital city, Université Laval is one of Canada's leading universities. Through an agreement with Université Laval, qualified SIUE undergraduate students may be nominated for a semester long  exchange placement at Laval.

Its narrow, winding streets, the European cachet of its Latin quarter, and spectacular surroundings combine with the warmth and hospitality of its people to make it one of the most popular tourist destinations in North America. Renowned for its museums and numerous cultural events, Quebec City also affords numerous possibilities to lovers of the outdoors, with parks and natural sites such as the St. Lawrence River and the Laurentian Mountains close at hand.
