Learn by doing

Look up and see the world.

We’re big believers that the best way to learn is through hands-on experience. Try an internship, study abroad or dive into a research program — you'll build real-world skills and make valuable connections along the way.

Broaden your perspective

Expand your horizons by studying abroad. Experience a different culture, and maybe even pick up a new language.

Choose from 150+ partner institutions around the globe — from Argentina to Australia and Spain to Singapore. Whether you’re majoring in poli sci, engineering or anything in between, we'll help you find a study abroad spot that will show you life from a whole new perspective.


Be a part of the next big discovery.

Many universities reserve top faculty members and research experiences for graduate students, but McGill breaks the mould. Our undergraduate students can learn alongside professors and help to conduct research that changes our world.

 


Learn, learn, learn. Every chance you get.

Your education might start in the classroom, but if you keep a look out, you'll find opportunities to learn, grow, and make the world a better place, no matter where you are.
