How to apply

***APRIL 29th, 2014: Due to a higher than normal volume of applications already this year, we are no longer accepting applications for the Fall 2014 term for the FMT program. For more information please call us. We strongly recommend that students apply in January or February to be considered for the following semester.

Applications for the FMT program are submitted using McGill University's online APPLICATION FORM.

Students interested in applying after August 1st must contact the FMT department for application instructions.


There is no official application deadline. Quebec students can apply through SRAM, whose deadline is March 1. The McGill application remains open after this date until the maximum number of offers has been reached.

Keep in mind that after you apply, we must receive all of your supporting documents before we can reach a decision on your application.

In order to have enough time to obtain the necessary travel documents, International students are advised to apply before January 15.
