Satellite campuses - B.Ed.

From the start of the 2021-2022 academic year, those wishing to become teachers will have the possibility of following part of the Bachelor of Education program in a satellite campus near their home town, in the framework of a three-year pilot project supported at the federal and provincial levels. These first two years will indeed be provided for the francophone and francophile communities in Calgary, Grande Prairie and Red Deer.

At two sites, the program will be offered and taught in full collaboration with key regional post-secondary education institutions: in Grande Prairie in collaboration with Northwestern Polytechnic University (NWP), and in Red Deer in collaboration with Red Deer Polytechnic (RDP). The premises of the respective institutions will serve as the satellite site. Students will also be able to take courses offered by NWP and RDP. In Calgary, the site will be at the Calgary Center of the University of Alberta.

During the 3rd and 4th years of the 4-year B.Ed. program, students will attend classes at Campus Saint-Jean in Edmonton and will do their practicum in their region of origin.

The courses will be offered partly face-to-face and partly distance/hybrid mode.

At the heart of Campus Saint-Jean is its historic and dynamic community. While their studies will be partly or entirely done from a satellite campus, students from Grande Prairie and Red Deer will be an integral part of both Saint-Jean and Northwestern Polytechnic University or Red Deer Polytechnic communities. They will have access to local services and facilities offered by regional partners, and will also be included in community activities organized by Campus Saint-Jean. They will benefit from the support of student services (La Centrale), academic and welfare support, and most other services available to students in Edmonton.
