MCGILL UNIVERSITY

McGill University

Founded in 1821, McGill University attracts people inspired by challenge and committed to shaping a better future. McGill researchers are not only recognized for their scientific and technological breakthroughs – the world’s first blood test for cancer and first Internet search engine among them – but also for examining the social, environmental, ethical and policy impacts of business practices, technology, science and medicine.  The diverse composition of McGill’s community, with approximately 50% of students from Quebec, 20% from the rest of Canada and 30% international, plus professors drawn from across the world, fosters an entrepreneurial and creative environment.

McGill’s downtown campus mixes heritage buildings with modern facilities. Its Macdonald Campus sits amidst fields and forests on the western tip of the Island of Montreal. Together, its campuses enjoy an international reputation for scholarly achievement and scientific discovery across more than 300 programs of study in 11 faculties: Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, Arts, Continuing Studies, Dentistry, Education, Engineering, Law, Management, Medicine, Music, and Science.
