    The process of seeking admission to McGill University undergraduate programs is quite formulaic and depends solely on splendid grades and standardized test scores. The university considers marks to be a sufficient parameter of judging ability and does not consider interviews, extracurricular, projects, or references of much value. On the other hand, admission in graduate programs is affected by many other factors such as recommendation letters, statements of purpose, and interviews.

  • Students have earned an accredited or recognized university degree (equivalent to a McGill undergraduate degree, Bachelor’s) which would serve as a basis of admission to a graduate degree program at a recognized research-intensive university in the same country.
  • Students must have been completed with a minimum standing of 3.0/4.0 or the equivalent, according to grading scale on the transcript.
