Please note that you have until February 15, 2020 11:59 pm Quebec time to complete your registration at the auditions.
Any application submitted after this date will not be considered.


The DEE is for people who are not eligible for DEC and are 18 years of age or older.

This 3-year program leads to a Diploma of Establishment Studies (certificate) awarded directly by the École de cirque de Québec.

Candidates must be in excellent physical shape, have a good regular training experience and must have developed a skill in a circus discipline or a related activity such as dance, gymnastics, trampoline, martial arts etc. No academic prerequisites are required, but you must be at least 18 years of age for the immigration process.

Unlike DEC, DEE does not guarantee post-graduation work permit.

Although the DEE program does not include some compulsory courses in DEC (Philosophy, Literature and English), the rest of the curriculum is the same as the DEC program.

Since the DEC is part of Quebec’s public education system, the costs are much lower than those of the DEE. It is therefore very advantageous for French students to opt for the DEC rather than the DEE.
