Immigration Information

Unless their studies at McGill will be completed in less than six (6) months, all students who are not Canadian citizens or Permanent Residents of Canada must obtain proper authorization from both Quebec and Canadian Immigration officials prior to proceeding to Canada and/or commencing studies. The process begins with a Letter of Acceptance from McGill University.

Details on Canadian immigration regulations may be obtained from Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada.

Nursing students are required to obtain a work coop in addition to their study permit. For further information please consult our website

In addition, International Student Services prepares a Getting Started pamphlet along with a detailed Handbook for international students, which is sent to all accepted applicants. The Handbook is also available on the International Student Services website.
