International Students

Don’t wait till the last minute!

Get started well in advance with all aspects of your application. Because of the time it can take to request and process documents such as transcripts, visas, study permits, or Certificate of Acceptance of Quebec (CAQ), you should not delay in getting started with the application process. For more information, please refer to the International Students section.

Graduate students who have received a degree from a university outside of Canada are responsible for having their degree evaluated for equivalency by Immigration Quebec.

All documents will be retained by McGill.

Your application can only be processed and completed once we have received all the required documents. While you must apply by the deadline date, you may still upload outstanding supporting documents afterwards as they become available.
