The main asset of the bachelor of commerce is that, unlike a classic business school, it is surrounded by other faculties. This brings a huge diversity to the student body and offers the possibility to take classes outside business.View more
I really love studying at McGill University. There are a lot of universities in Montreal so most of the people there are university students. It’s very easy to meet new people and make friends from all around the world.View more
I really like how multicultural McGill University is. In general, Montreal is a multicultural city as well, but it is very nice to be able to meet and connect with students from all around the world at McGill. I’m from Turkey and I first came to Montreal in 2018 to study at McGill and I found the school to make my transition much easier than I thought it would be. University staff and professors are very nice and accommodating. I find that McGill has the perfect academic life and social life balance.View more
Such a beautiful campus! I fell in love with it the soon I set my eyes on the towers reminiscent of Hogwarts. The actual application site; however, looks like it hasn’t been updated since 2000…which makes everything kind of difficult!View more
The decision to enroll at McGill University was one of the best I have ever made. The university offers a wide range of programs and classes and the professors are deeply involved in the learning process, always there to support their students. McGill professors are generally very reputed in their fields, and as such, tend to have much more to offer than class material.
The beautiful campus, fully integrated into downtown Montreal, is an excellent environment for education and student life. McGill’s international community, both within the student body and among the professors, also allows each individual to find their place while building an extensive network that provides life-long friendship, connections, and opportunities.
The McGill experience really is like no other, a perfect environment to find a balance between prestigious academics and a dynamics personal and social life.
I have recently finished my third year in B.A Economics (Honours) and Mathematics program at McGill University. The program is extremely challenging but worth it if you have any plans to pursue Economics in graduate school and beyond. The only problem with the program is that there aren’t enough practical applications in the courses that you take, so I do recommend people to take some Computer Science courses as well. This is useful especially if you are looking to enter the job market after graduation. Professors in both departments are usually amazing and very helpful outside of class hours too.
McGill University is located at the heart of downtown Montreal, so there is never any shortage of things to do, and so student life here is great
I had a great experience at McGill University, however, the B.ED program is poorly designed. The education classes lack real-world application. The profs were great, however, it felt like they haven’t actually been in a classroom in a very long time and some of their information was totally outdated.
Besides the education classes, you have to obtain a major and a minor in your chosen teachable subjects. Standard English Literature and History classes just don’t provide any value to actually teaching these subjects. Taking random classes for both subjects, that are totally irrelevant to high school students did not prepare me for the classroom at all. I wish the English lit and history classes were actually geared towards adolescents and how to teach the material. Also, because you are taking education classes as well as two other teachable subject classes, your schedule will be all over campus so be prepared to walk as the Montreal Campus is HUGE!View more
Outstanding education, good faculty, and unquestionably a top university, however… the administration and support services are frequently beyond poor, terrible, and unbelievably bad.
Administrative procedures are tangled and Kafkaesque. It could be related to the Quebec Unions that employ them, and their French legacy of bureaucratic apathy, unhelpfulness, and an unwillingness to accomplish their tasks efficiently.
Also, there is a large party culture in Montreal, which is easy to get lost in, yet living there is inexpensive, as is going out.
I’d go back there for an education.
I am a student at McGill University majoring in Anatomy and Cell Biology. The program is hard but it provides early exposes pre-med students with the necessary anatomy courses. I personally enjoy this program a lot, especially the labs. The cadaver labs are really cool and it’s amazing to have a hands-on experience in undergrad years.View more
Attending McGill University has been one of my greatest experiences. As a woman of color, choosing the right university was a challenge. I had to think about whether I would be appreciated and respected in the establishment or hated and mocked. Yet, all my fears rapidly disappeared on the first day I had in my program. Studying Sociology has made me acknowledge how wonderful society can truly be. As I also study Psychology, I recognize that people’s behaviour can vary depending on various factors such as childhood, lifestyle, and health. These are simple things that I now think about every day. The truth is I enjoy analysing each circumstance that I find myself in. I have truly become a product of my program!View more
