McGill University is an excellent educational institution with a large multi-cultural international student body. The University campus is spacious and offers large amounts of green spaces interwoven with a mixture of old and new buildings, a beautiful and well equipped library, state of the art sports facilities, plenty of outdoor/indoor study spots and its very own natural history museum – the Redpath museum. McGill is located in Montreal, Canada which is, in my experience, a very accessible and enjoyable city for students due to its affordability and its dynamic culture, music and arts scene. During my time there, I really valued the eclectic, multi-disciplinary course choices on offer and also the level of engagement from professors and lecturers. Professors provided lots of valuable assignment feedback and did not shy away from offering additional mentorship to students through a variety of research opportunities.
McGill University demands a high work-load from students which can be challenging especially due to its large class sizes and lack of administrative support. McGill could improve accessibility to mental health and general health resources as well as increasing academic accomodations for those in need.View more
I enjoyed the environment but the classes were very crowded at times. I think that courses could have been better organized however, I did my best to understand what the professors taught. I think that the university could have been more enticing if there were fewer complementsry courses.View more
The profs I had in the McGill political science and philosophy departments really do care about their work and their students success. I was fortunate enough to be supported by the extremely fair and generous financial aid department as well, without whom my education would not have been possible.View more
I could not be happier with my experience at McGill University. Among so many positive factors contributing to my years here, the work-life balance really stood out to me. At McGill, the community is the most hard-working and determined group I have been in, while also having the most fun. It is inspiring and motivating to be surrounded by students who have the grit and determination to get their work done with a very goal-oriented mindset, thinking about their future. Students prioritize their school work and grades, while allowing time for relaxation, time with friends, socializing, etc. In general, students study as much/hard as they can during the days, to ensure there is free time on weekends/nights to have fun, party, etc.View more
McGill is a great university with great professors and updated courses. Unfortunately compared to other universities McGill’s campus is quite outdated. Other then that thought I have received many job opportunities for just being a student here so I would definitely recommend.View more
The Computer Science major at McGill University is a versatile one that allows its students to get a taste of various facets of the subject. As such, I find it a good fit for anyone who doesn’t know which path of Computer Science they would like to pursue. However, this can also be a double edged sword, as it does not allow for in depth exploration of any of the subjects learned during the major, which can be a con for many people.View more
McGill is not one of the most diverse university’s and for that, I wish there were more opportunities for me to connect with other alumni and students who are going down the same academic path as I am. However, I am enjoying my current experience and involvement in the clubs I am currently in and the diversity within these clubs themselves.View more
I had a phenomenal experience at McGill. The professors I had the privilege of learning from were so well-versed in their fields and taught me more than I ever thought was possible in a 12 week (1 semester) block. The campus was large enough to be exciting and refreshing but not too large that it was unmanageable.View more
