Applications for the FMT program can be submitted using McGill University's online APPLICATION FORM.
Please read the Entrance Requirements found on the Program Information page.
Canadian applicants: March 1, 2021.
There are two methods of applying to the FMT program. Students can apply through SRAM, whose deadline is March 1 for Quebec students. Students may also apply directly to FMT through the McGill website (recommended, see link above) by applying by March 1st for Canadian students. If spaces remain in the program after selections are completed, more Canadian applications may be considered after that date.
Keep in mind that after you apply, we must receive all of your supporting documents before we can reach a decision on your application. All communication from our office will be by email, to the account you list in your application. Don't forget to check your emails regularly!
In order to have enough time to obtain the necessary travel documents, the application deadline for students with an education completed outside of Canada is January 15.
