What does it cost to go to McGill?

The answer depends on where you’re from, what you want to study, and where you choose to live.

McGill offers a range of residence options — take a look and see what fits your budget and lifestyle. If you prefer to live off campus, student-friendly Montreal is full of affordable apartments.

Get help with funding

We are committed to supporting our students in every way.

Maclean’s magazine ranks McGill #1 among Canadian universities for the percentage of total operating budget devoted to scholarships and bursaries.

McGill offers merit-based entrance scholarships and need-based entrance financial aid, along with other funding programs. All new first-year students are eligible to apply, regardless of their citizenship.

Work, study, learn

Taking on a job while you earn your degree is a great way to gain valuable experience and make room in your budget.

Good news for full-time international students! With a valid study permit, you can work off campus as soon as you arrive.

For students experiencing financial need, the Work Study program offers on-campus jobs that look great on your CV — and most Work Study gigs don’t require French!
