Applying for Grad Studies

McGill has launched a new on-line applications system “uApply”. Prospective applicants are strongly urged to view the application information page on the Future Graduate Students website before applying. The decision, application and acceptance to graduate studies at McGill can be done in five steps:

  2. CONNECT with your chosen graduate unit. Make sure that you have contacted a prospective supervisor and/or the graduate unit before applying. If you have any questions about a program, contact the Macdonald Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.
  3. PREPARE your application. Before your application can be completed, you will be asked to fill in personal information, provide the contact information for two referees and to upload various documents related to your academic background. Make sure you have this information available.
  4. APPLY. Upload all required documents. Make sure to meet deadlines (see below).
