Admission Requirements

The normal basis for admission is completion of the credentials that lead to university admission in your country of study. Consideration is given to the complete high school record with emphasis on grades obtained in courses most relevant to the intended program of study. All grades are taken into consideration, including those of failed or repeated courses. Given McGill’s competitive admission process and the academic rigour of all programs, applicants from overseas vocational and technical high schools are not normally considered for admission.

Admission is competitive and applicants who present the minimum requirements are not guaranteed admission; limited enrolment programs will also have higher minima.

 

 

Advanced Level, Advanced Subsidiary, CAPE, and Cambridge Pre-U Examinations

The minimum requirements are: three A-Levels with predicted and final grades of B, B, C, or better, or two A-level and two AS subjects with grades of B, B, C, C, or better, or B, C, B, B, or better. Many programs are more competitive and require higher grades for GCSEs, AS and A-levels, CAPE, and Cambridge Pre-U; applicants who present the minimum requirements are not guaranteed admission.

A maximum of 30 credits of advanced standing may be granted for final official results. Details can be found at: www.mcgill.ca/students/transfercredit/prospective/advanced.

  • If completing Upper Form VI, you will be considered on: GCSEs, Form VI grades, AS 1(or modular/unit) results and predicted AL results. If you have completed only lower Form VI with AS and have a minimum of five appropriate GCSE examinations with clearly superior marks, you can be considered for admission on an individual basis.
  • If you are attending a school where it is the policy to sit all examinations at the end of the second year (and not sit for unit examinations and/or not claim AS qualifications at the end of AL1), then your school must communicate this information clearly to McGill University, either by letter or in its school profile. If completed, AS results must be submitted.
  • For Caribbean students: CAPE Unit 1 and 2 and CSEC examinations are acceptable in place of AL and GCSE, with minimum grades of I to III.
  • Students with Cambridge Pre-U Principal Subjects: Minimum grade is M3 with not more than one at M3.

French Baccalaureate

You will be considered for admission on your ‘bulletins’ for Première and Terminale or, if already completed, on your final ‘Bac’ results. A diploma in “premier groupe” with “mention assez bien” (i.e., 12/20) is the minimum expected for most programs. Many programs are more competitive and will require higher grades.

A maximum of 30 credits advanced standing can be granted for the French Baccalaureate. Details can be found at www.mcgill.ca/students/transfercredit/prospective/french.

Classes préparatoires aux grandes écoles (CPGE):

McGill has a long history of admitting applicants from France; we are familiar with the structure and grading systems of the French Baccalaureate (FB) and French universities, as well as the Classes préparatoires aux grandes écoles (CPGE). At this time, studies completed in CPGE do not serve as a basis for admission to McGill, even if integrated with a program leading to university credit in France.

Accordingly, McGill applicants who have undertaken CPGE study are evaluated on their FB results. Such applicants should identify themselves as "Applicants from High Schools Outside Canada and the USA - French Baccalaureate" not as "Applicants from Other Universities or Colleges and Second Bachelor Degree Applicants (‘Transfers').

McGill is aware that Bologna reforms have changed assignment of credit and exemptions for CPGE study at some universities in Europe. We continue to monitor developments in this regard.

Bologna

McGill welcomes qualified applicants from throughout Europe, including Bologna signatory schools. Applicants will be considered for admission into McGill degree programs of similar duration as those at comparable, research-intensive universities in Europe. Accordingly, qualified applicants to the faculties of Arts, Education, and Management at McGill, with a Bologna-compliant diploma that leads to a three-year undergraduate program in Europe, will be admissible to a three-year program at McGill. Applicants to Management will be required to complete additional mathematics coursework.

Degrees for science-based programs (faculties of AES, Engineering, and Science)  typically will be longer, due to McGill's specific math and science requirements.  In most cases, these degrees will require completion of the Freshman program. Details can be found at www.mcgill.ca/students/transfercredit.

Precise admission standards, prerequisites and advanced standing are always subject to the policies of each McGill faculty.



Other International Admission Credentials

McGill University receives applications from more than 120 countries each year; the most frequently seen international secondary school diplomas are subsequently listed. Students who have completed or will complete these or other recognized pre-university diplomas (such as the European Baccalaureate) are eligible to apply to McGill.

In all cases, a strong overall academic record, with strong results in prerequisite courses, is the minimum requirement.

A maximum of 30 credits advanced standing can be granted for final results in the Abitur, the Bagrut, and the European Baccalaureate for students entering the Faculties of Arts, and Education, and a maximum of 27 credits can be granted for students entering the Desautels Faculty of Management. Details can be found at www.mcgill.ca/students/transfercredit.
