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 academic adviser and an upper-year undergraduate student. They meet once every two weeks in the Fall or Winter 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 various aspects of life in Montreal. The purpose of a FIG is to ease the transition to McGill and Montreal and to provide an opportunity to interact with an adviser and with other U0 students in a small group. FIGs carry no credit and there is no charge. For more information and on how to register: Bachelor of Science students, refer to the New Student website B.Sc. Freshman course selection section on FIGs; Bachelor or Arts & Science students, refer to the New Student website B.A. & Sc. Freshman course selection section on FIGs.
