McGill University’s Winter 2023 academic activities are in-person.
The full McGill experience
Since the start of the 2022-23 academic year, all undergraduate and graduate courses have been delivered in-person, except for those specifically designed and approved to be delivered online.
After a successful fall semester that brought the McGill community back together and allowed us to reconnect with the benefits and excitement of campus life, we are looking forward to the winter 2023 semester.
Our campuses, and the people who bring them to life, are what make us McGill
