The health and safety of all remain our highest priority. That is why the entire team at Québec numérique and 42 Québec is working from the comfort of their homes to continue moving 42 Québec forward. Students are also at home until January 17, and then will be in a hybrid home/campus mode until March 31.

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.

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

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.


What will be done to ensure security at 42 Québec?

The health and safety of our candidates and employees remains a priority. Here are the rules that are added to those already in place:

  • Wearing a procedure mask (provided by 42 Québec) is mandatory at all times, even when seated at a workstation.
  • Common areas are not accessible.
  • The cafeteria is set up to facilitate social distancing.
  • Candidates must use the same computer station throughout the Piscine.


What should I do in the meantime?

Stay alert to new information that will be shared on our website, on our social networks, in our newsletter, and by email. If you haven’t, now is the time to complete your profile on the admission platform and choose your Pool. We also suggest that you take a jog, learn to bake bread, or bring out an old 1000 piece puzzle!
