Dean's Welcome

Welcome to Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (GPS) at McGill! You are joining a community of world class researchers, and more than 9000 graduate students in over 400 programs. Once you have been offered admission, I encourage you to follow these steps, and explore our website where you'll find information on essential topics, such as: funding opportunitiesgraduate supervision; and writing and submitting your thesis.

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, and your well-being and student life. I invite you to consult the website Resources for your Success, which is a one-stop-shop for the many resources and support systems in place for you across the University

I encourage you to participate in the many orientation activities designed specifically for graduate students. This is a great way to get to know the McGill campus and community. 

Please take a minute and watch my welcome message for new graduate students. 

On behalf of GPS, I would like to wish you all the best in your studies at McGill. We are here to make sure that you have the best possible experience.


Josephine Nalbantoglu, Dean
