Life at IBQ
At IBQ, we have no on-campus residences or cafeteria, therefore we cannot take responsibility for housing students.
Please note that the IBQ is not responsible for lodging, meals or transportation to and from campus.
For special occasions such as week-long intensive courses, the IBQ can help an external student find low-cost accommodation for the week.
Our campus is located in Longueuil. With its 250,000 inhabitants, it is the third most populated city in the province of Quebec in Canada. Located on the outskirts of the greater Montreal area, Longueuil is well served by public transportation. Our campus is a 10-minute walk from the Longueuil-Université-de-Sherbrooke metro station.
On the first floor of our campus, you will find our library with work spaces and a multipurpose room. In the basement, you will find a dining room with socializing spaces, a classroom and our administrative offices. You will feel at home here..
Chapel are organized for our students. Dates, days and times may vary but are communicated at the beginning of each new session.
A warm place, worship in unity, times of sharing and testimonies, a place to recharge and express oneself, we seek to offer you the opportunity to rest,
have fun, and be inspired by a variety of guests and themes throughout the year.
There are several advantages. First, you have the opportunity to study theology in an evangelical school while receiving university credits recognized in both the ecclesiastical and public sectors. Second, you study theology in a school that belongs to the Pentecostal tradition, even though we remain open to different points of view, of course.
Third, our programs meet the academic requirements for the various levels of accreditation to be a minister with the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada, an organization with over 1,200 churches in Canada. Fourth, IBQ offers all its programs by distance education as well as on-site. Finally, the program "Le réseau" program is quite unique in its kind for young people who are looking for an experience that is more inspirational than academics.
Our course schedule is determined in advance by the IBQ administration based on student needs. If the course you wish to take is not available at this time, you should be able to take other courses that are part of your program. Otherwise, you can contact the registrar's office to discuss your situation.
That depends on your goals. A certificate in theology may be sufficient for certain ministries or for an individual who simply wants to deepen his or her biblical, theological or practical knowledge. However, if you are aiming for a profession such as pastor or chaplain, a Bachelor of Theology degree would be more appropriate, or even required depending on the case.
We have several formats of distance education courses. Basically, you will need a computer and an internet connection. Some of our distance courses are "asynchronous", which means that you can progress at your own pace with deadlines to meet. In this case you have pre-recorded videos and open-date activities on our virtual course platform.
The "synchronous" distance courses are done in real time through the Zoom application. Each week, you must be present here at a predetermined time to meet with your teacher.
Only our French programs can be taken full-time as well as part-time. English programs are only available part-time. We offer 2-3 English courses per semester: 1-2 is on site in the Montreal area, and the other one is through distance education.
To be full time, anglophone students would need to take some of their courses in French. It is also possible to take French courses and submit some of your assignments in English.
