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.
Indigenous students can choose to self-identify and provide a personal statement with their application. This helps decision-makers understand the unique insight, experiences and motivations you will bring to campus. It also connects you with advising, services and funding specifically for Indigenous students.
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!
