Freshman Interest Groups
Freshman Interest Groups (FIGs) are groups of approximately 25 U0 students and U1 students in their first semester, in the B.Sc. or B.A. & Sc., led by a Faculty of Science staff member and an upper-year undergraduate student. They meet once every two weeks in the Fall semester (or weekly for half the semester) to discuss a wide range of topics, such as science in the news, program choices, undergraduate research opportunities, or just aspects of life in Montreal. The purpose of a FIG is to ease the transition to McGill and Montreal and to provide you an opportunity to interact with a professor and with other U0 students in a small group. FIGs carry no credit and there is no charge. For more information and to see how to register, refer to "Your first year" in the Science Undergraduate Handbook mcgill.ca/science/undergraduate/handbook/.
