Where great minds gather.

With the highest average entering grade in the country, McGill attracts the very best and brightest students. Your student's academic record, including their overall results and performance in prerequisite courses, will determine the strength of their application.

Learn more about our admissions cut-offs, deadlines, and which documents are required for your student's chosen program.

Plan a group tour

Visiting Montreal with your students? You can book a downtown campus tour for groups of 10 or more. Contact us at least one week in advance to explore the scenery, architecture, clubs and life on campus.

Our recruiters come to you

The team at McGill travels widely to meet with students and counsellors in their communities and answer questions about admissions, programs, and life at McGill. Check our events calendar to see when we'll be in your area. 

What about transfer credit and advanced standing?

Students do not apply for transfer credit or advanced standing. Courses taken at CEGEP, university, or through various high school curricula (such as Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, French Baccalaureate, European Baccalaureate or Advanced Levels), must be indicated in the student’s application. Once the student has been admitted and has accepted their offer, their file will automatically be reviewed for credit and possible exemptions.
