The majority of graduate programs are NOT impacted by recent government announcements about tuition increases.

PhD students from the rest of Canada will continue to pay Quebec fees.
International PhD fees will see the same 3% increase as Quebec fees.

Application deadlines

It is the applicant’s responsibility to verify their program-specific deadline and submit their application on time. Some programs have early deadlines (e.g. December 1 for the Fall term). Program-specific application deadlines are listed on the departmental websites and in the online application system.

Current McGill students are required to follow the application deadlines based on their student status (e.g., domestic or international).

Unless a program has specified an earlier deadline, the application deadlines are as follows:
