McGill University is a coeducational public research university in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It was established in 1821 by royal charter, granted by King George IV of the United Kingdom. The University bears the name of James McGill, a Montreal merchant from Scotland whose bequest in 1813 formed the university's precursor, McGill College.

McGill's main campus is located at Mount Royal in downtown Montreal, with the second campus situated in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, also on the Montreal Island, 30 kilometres (18 miles) west of the main campus.

McGill University enjoys an international reputation for scholarly achievement and scientific discovery. Cutting-edge facilities, innovative teaching programs and multidisciplinary research attract first-class students and professors from around the world. Top researchers regularly teach undergraduate classes and engage students in inquiry-based learning.

McGill offers more than 300 programs of study through its 11 faculties: Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, Arts, Dentistry, Education, Engineering, Law, Management, Medicine, Music and Science.

Montreal offers students a safe, affordable, vibrant, multicultural environment in which to live and learn. Students can enrich their educational experience through hands-on research, internships, exchange and study-abroad programs, intramural and intercollegiate sports, field study and engagement in community service and campus life. The university recognizes academic distinction and leadership through generous undergraduate scholarships and student aid.

The regular Academic test and the test for UKVI are both accepted. A band score of 6.5 or better; individual component scores of 6.0 or better.

McGill accepts only scores submitted electronically by an IELTS test center, and no longer accepts paper TRFs (Test Report Forms) directly from test centres and candidates.

The transition from living at home to living in residences is a big step for many of  first year students. McGill's residences create a respectful and supportive environment that becomes a new home for students, providing a community foundation within which they can flourish personally, socially and academically.

Each year, approximately 3,000 undergraduate students live on either the downtown or Macdonald campus. McGill Student Housing offers hotel-style, dorm-style, and apartment-style residences that reflect the diversity of  student population.

MORE shared facilities houses offer students the privacy of their own bedroom along with the attraction of communal living, with large kitchens and common rooms .

UNDERGRADUATE DOWNTOWN RESIDENCES

  13 undergraduate downtown residences include 3 hotel-style residences, 6 dorm-style residences, and 4 apartment-style residences. While facilities vary from building to building, the sense of community that characterizes the life in Rez remains constant.

GRADUATE DOWNTOWN RESIDENCES

Graduate students have the option of choosing between single bedrooms in shared-facilities houses and single occupancy apartments. For many McGill grad students, the sense of community and collegial atmosphere of living on campus, right in Montreal's vibrant downtown core, has been an essential part of their graduate student experience.

2nd, 3rd, and 4th YEAR UNDERGRADS & RETURNING GRADUATE RESIDENCES

2nd, 3rd, and 4th year Undergraduate students and Returning Grad students have numerous options to choose from; they can move into Greenbriar Apartments, Hutchison Apartments, as well as other popular residences. All the buildings are conveniently situated in Montreal's lively downtown area.

MACDONALD RESIDENCES

The charming Macdonald Campus is located in St-Anne de Bellevue, a 30 minute drive from the downtown campus. Both the apartment-style housing of EcoResidence and the dormitory-style rooms of Laird Hall are close to campus facilities, including classrooms, the library and many student services. This location also features the Macdonald Farm, which supplies fresh produce for McGill’s Food and Dining locations.

Off-Campus Accommodations

The local area has a variety of off-campus rental housing options including single homes, duplexes, apartments and rooms for rent. Students wishing to live off-campus need to research availability on their own and should arrive well before the start of term to do so.

Homestay

There are a wide variety of homestay options available, and partners do their best to match students and hosts according to their interests and preferences. Homestay hosts include single people, young couples with children and pets, and older couples. All homestay accommodations have been inspected, and all adults in the home have completed a required criminal reference check.

 

 

McGill recognizes the challenges International students can face when studying away from home. The Scholarships and Student Aid Office is committed to ensuring that qualified students from any geographic region are financially supported in their goals to enter and complete academic programs at the University.

McGill Scholarships & Awards

Newly admitted undergraduate students can apply to McGill’s Entrance Scholarship Program. In-course award programs for undergraduate students currently studying at McGill fall under individual faculty jurisdiction as do those for graduate students.

McGill Financial Aid

The Scholarships and Student Aid Office administers need-based Financial Aid Programs for future and current undergraduates as well as current graduate students from Canada, US, and abroad. The programs offer modest loans and bursaries to students in need of supplemental financial assistance.
