Because of the ongoing pandemic, Université Sainte-Anne will not be offering spring and summer immersion sessions in 2021. Students, teachers, and staff will have to wait at least another year to attend this much-anticipated program. “It is a necessary but difficult decision.

Our priorities remain the health and safety of our university community and to limit the spread of the virus,” says Allister Surette, president and vice-chancellor of Université Sainte-Anne.
