  • About the School:
  • McGill University is one of Canada's best-known institutions of higher learning and one of the country's leading research-intensive universities. With students coming to McGill from about 160 countries, our student body is the most internationally diverse of any medical-doctoral university in Canada.

    The oldest university in Montreal, McGill was founded in 1821 from a generous bequest by James McGill, a prominent Scottish merchant. Since that time, McGill has grown from a small college to a bustling university with two campuses, 11 faculties, some 300 programs of study, and more than 34,000 students. The University partners with four affiliated teaching hospitals to graduate over 1,000 health care professionals each year.

  • Financial Aid Information:
  • Scholarships and awards: Entrance scholarships, also referred to as awards, are awarded on the basis of academic achievement or a combination of academic achievement and leadership qualities, and financial need is not considered. A bursary is an award based on financial need and does not have to be paid back once you have completed your studies.

    Co-op programs: Students alternate study terms with terms working in industry, gaining valuable on the job experience and training. For example, McGill's Co-op Mining Engineering program involves 7 study terms and 4 work terms.

    Internships also provide an opportunity for practical experience in the workplace and can sometimes earn academic credit.

    Field studies offer you the chance to spend up to a semester in Panama, Barbados, or the Arizona desert, on the Bay of Fundy, in the Canadian Prairies, in rural Quebec or Africa with other McGill students studying the human and physical environment. Plus, some McGill summer courses are offered in Italy, China and Greece.

    Exchanges: You can spend 1 or 2 terms of your degree program at a university in another country. McGill has partnerships with hundreds of schools around the world to add an international dimension to your studies.
  • Additional Information:
  • Term: The academic year is broken into three terms: Fall (September to December) and Winter (January to April), with some courses available during the Summer term (May to August). Most programs do not require students to register in the Summer term.

    Credits: Each course you take is assessed on the basis of a certain number of credits. Most half-year courses are worth 3 credits and full-year courses are worth 6 credits. A full course load for the September to December and January to April terms is usually 5 courses each term, which, at 3 credits each, is 30 credits in total. Students can take a minimum of 12 credits per session and still be considered full-time.

    Transfer: If you've already been a student at another university, you can apply to transfer your credits to McGill. If you're a McGill student and you've changed your mind about what you'd like to study, you can apply to transfer from one faculty to another.
