The higher education programs aim to produce professional circus artists. Two programs, the first, intended for Canadian students, and the second, intended for foreign students, are offered to students who have completed their high school studies.
Intended for Canadian students, the Diploma of Collegial Studies in circus arts program combines specialized training in circus arts with general college-level education. This three-year program leads to a college diploma issued by the ministère de l'Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport du Québec.
Intended for foreign students, this 3-Year higher-education program leads directly to the professional career. A higher education diploma is issued by the National Circus School.
*The DEC program is also available to candidates with French citizenship. France has concluded a reciprocal agreement on education with Quebec government.
