Connect with our community
Do you identify as First Nations, Inuit, or Métis? If so, you are encouraged to self-identify on your McGill admission application. Self-identifying helps our dedicated Indigenous student recruitment advisor to connect with you one-on-one to share information about support services and funding opportunities specifically for Indigenous students. It also opens up the opportunity to apply for admission under the Indigenous Applicants Protocol.
How do I apply?
You start by finding a program that interests you and checking out the admissions requirements. The requirements vary depending on where the last school you went to is located.
The Indigenous Applicants Protocol encourages admissions decision-makers to take educational experiences that are unique to Indigenous applicants into consideration. This helps decision-makers understand the unique insight and motivations you will bring to campus.
Strong campus community
There's a tight-knit network of Indigenous students on campus. The First Peoples' House is a space to connect, relax and access academic and cultural support.
Indigenous students receive between $2,000 and $10,000 for their studies through a partnership between Indspire and McGill which aims to increase Indigenous recruitment.
Cultural and academic events
The First Peoples' House hosts drumming and beading sessions, a weekly Soup and Bannock lunch, and an annual Pow wow. They offer academic events through the year.
Indigenous learning on campus
Did you know you can learn Kanien'kéha (Mohawk) at McGill? Our growing Indigenous Studies program hosts public lectures and an annual Knowledge Holder series.
Finding housing around the city
The First Peoples' House has a few rooms available for students, and McGill has many other options if you want to live on campus. Housing is affordable around the city, too!
