Welcome to Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (GPS) at McGill. You are joining a community of world class researchers, with more than 10,000 graduate students in over 400 programs.
In these unprecedented times, the need for community, curiosity and innovation is stronger than ever. Our administrators, faculty members and researchers are forging new paths forward, showing adaptability and ingenuity in the face of uncertainty. We are preparing for exceptional educational experiences in the fall semester, and exploring the different pathways that can lead us there.

Support along the way
GPS is here to support you from admissions through to graduation and beyond. We take a holistic approach to graduate student success. We support not only your academic development, but also your career-planning and professional development, your well-being and student life. I invite you to consult resources for your success, which is a one-stop-shop for the many resources and support systems in place for you across the University.
