Support from faculty members, motivation from your peers, and inspiration from preeminent guest speakers and conferences will all help you to reach your full potential.

During your time here, you’ll form relationships with your peers in seminars and labs, and during any one of the plentiful social activities at McGill or in Montreal. McGill grad students achieve work-life balance by complementing their research work with social, cultural and physical activities. The Post-Graduate Students’ Society offers an array of services and events, including parties and group trips.
