Dawson College creates compelling online experience for Open House Oct. 20-

Dawson College usually has over 10,000 people crowding into the building for Open House on one afternoon. This year, Dawson is doing things differently by creating a compelling Virtual Open House to be over six days, from Tuesday, Oct. 20 through Sunday, Oct. 25. The experience will launch from the 2020 Open House landing page on the Dawson website: www.dawsoncollege.qc.ca/open-house

For students considering applying to CEGEP for Fall 2021, Dawson will be offering:

  • 22 technical programs
  • five pre-university programs
  • Many profiles of study to choose from in three of the pre-u programs: Arts, Language and Communication, Science and Social Science
  • New: Medical Ultrasound Technology is a new three-year technical program. It will be offered for the first time in English in Quebec at Dawson College
