42 QUEBEC AND COVID-19

Last update: 2020-05-25

The health and safety of all remain our highest priority. That is why the entire team at Québec numérique and 42 Québec is teleworking from the comfort of their homes to continue moving the project forward.

The government guidelines are clear to curb the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and it is our duty to follow them to the letter. This situation is unfortunately beyond our control, but we understand that it may have implications for candidates or people interested in 42 Québec.

However, we want to reassure you that the project is well underway and we are moving forward!

You will find below the answers to the most frequently asked questions. If you do not find an answer to your question, please contact us at [email protected].

If changes need to be made, we will let you know promptly. Keep an eye on this FAQ or on our social media to be notified.

Can I still sign up for 42 Québec?

Yes, you can. Part of the application process is online. In fact, voluntary or involuntary confinement is a good time to take the online tests, which take a total of 2 hours and 10 minutes. We encourage you to take the logic tests and then attend our introductory online meetings if you pass the test.

Still holding introductory meetings?

Yes, we still hold introductory online meetings that allow you to complete the second step of the process and ask all your questions related to 42 Québec.

If you prefer face-to-face meetings, don’t worry. As soon as the situation returns to normal, meeting dates will be available in the admissions platform and you will be notified by email.

I am already registered at a Piscine, what happens?

An email has been sent to candidates registered at a Piscine to give them the necessary information. If you have not received the email, please do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected].

Can the Piscine be done online?

Unfortunately, no. One of the goals of the Piscine is to create a group synergy so that the notion of peer learning can take root. It cannot be done entirely online. Bringing people together is its raison d’être.

When do you think you will be able to officially open the school?

We’re working on a schedule for the opening of our activities in relation to the various government measures currently in place.

Why do I still see the July and August Piscine on the admission platform?

The Piscines are still visible because some candidates were registered there and they cannot change their choice until the new dates are known. On the other hand, it is no longer possible to register for new candidates.

What should I do in the meantime?

Stay alert and wait for confirmation of the new dates. If this is not done, use this time to complete the logic tests. You can also go jogging, learn to bake a loaf of bread, or take out your old 1,000 piece puzzle!
