Profile
McGill University is an English language university located in the centre of one the largest French speaking cities in the world. A vibrant metropolis of 3.5 million inhabitants, Montreal is a modern city with a distinctly European flair. Founded in 1821, McGill owes its existence to James McGill, a Montreal fur trader, merchant, and civic leader, who died in 1813, leaving an endowment for the founding of McGill College. McGill's modern facilities and innovative ideas attract internationally respected teachers and researchers, as well as first class students.

McGill is one of Canada's largest universities with almost 30,000 students, over 2,000 teaching staff, and 73 affiliated research institutes. One of North American's leading research institutions, McGill has 11 faculties and ten professional schools offering undergraduate and graduate programs in some 300 disciplines. McGill's Centre for Continuing Education offers courses and/or certificate and diploma programs in a wide range of fields. In addition to an emphasis on research, the University values effective teaching. McGill's Centre for Teaching and Learning provides formal training and development for all university teaching staff, highlights new teaching methods and technologies, and researches how university professors develop their teaching skills.

McGill graduates find their degrees highly portable and the university's reputation highly respected by both employers and graduate schools. McGill boasts an alumni network 120,000 strong. Graduates extend throughout the world and provide ready made contacts and opportunities.
