Beyond the classroom

Made by lessons learned outside the lab.

We know that education doesn’t end when you leave the classroom.

Our committed students, staff and faculty members are always seeking new ways to enrich the graduate and postdoctoral experience at McGill. We help you bridge the gap between education and practical experience, on campus, across Montreal, and around the world.


Take charge of your finances. Work on your soft skills. Try your hand at teaching. SkillSets offers workshops, conferences and events to help you unlock your potential.
