  • The most prestigious University of Montreal, is right in downtown Montreal comprises several buildings surrounded by large gardens, the penalty is that this year the surroundings are all in the works, due to the preparation of the celebration of the 375 years of Montreal in their gardens, we could see amount of squirrels and some washer bear

  • Lovely campus centrally located in downtown, right by the Fine Arts Museum. These days it's really hard to get around, as there is major construction everywhere near the University, especially on Sher...  read more »

  • Great school. Great campus. Opened a lot of doors in my life that were previously closed. Staff however are not always nice. Service could be better.
  • Canada's dream school! Set in the heart of the beautiful French city of Montreal, this school has some of the best faculty and programs Canada has to offer. No wonder it's Canada's #1 school (especially for graduate programs and funding). The students are humble and well-diverse since it attracts a lot of international students. You can always find a McGill alum doing something great in any part of the world! It's a shame the school has dropped a couple spots in the world rankings recently (from top 20 to top 25). I really think charging higher tuition for Quebec students can change that!
  • I am an east asian student in McGill but I really enjoy my time here. According to my and many of my asian or east asian friends' experience, I don't think the students and McGill staff are racists. Most of them are really great persons and very kind to me! The truth is that racist exists everywhere across the world but generally speaking, McGill is a very international and open university and would not judge you by your race. Yes, McGill has its problems. But it is still a very prestigious university and we as McGill students are proud of our university (There's a few complaints in McGill. But few complaints are very common in every university). And the academic atmosphere here is excellent, people are very kind, city is also awesome, and etc... but the weather sucks. Most McGill students like me love our university because it's truly great. (That's why McGill has 4.5/5 score in google Rate&review.)
  • Administration staff on Mc-Tavish Street are very unprofessional and racist with east Asian students. I've experienced it by myself and also confirmed it with quite a few Asian students. Moreover, when I sent an inquiry by Email to the medicine faculty about some detailed information on admission, they gave me answers that were contrary to McGill's official websites. Very unprofessional staff. Lots of McGill students actually complain about McGill, I really don't know why McGill's ranking is still among the top. Seriously, it is terrible, beyond your imagination. Think twice before you apply for McGill. McGill is no longer what it used to be.
