A major academic institution for students around the world, McGill downtown campus stands as well as one of the top touristic sites in Montreal. What there is to see? Mostly the outside areas, the variety of its architecture, a landmark of Montreal, and various museums. Walking in the garden and around it is always a delight for me. Yes, I... More

I still have some time before university, but McGill is now my number one choice and dream! After visiting the school, I was full of the positive, however still kind of a mysterious feeling the university will leave in you.

McGill University is a beautiful and historic site. It is spread all around Montreal, but the main campus is centrally located at the base of Mount Royal just above Sherbrooke St. If you like architecture, you will find a number of great buildings to visit. You can walk around the main campus in about a half-hours time and you will... More

Still the best university in Canada(sorry UofT !) and a wonderful alternative for graduating UK students.If you are a resident it's almost entirely paid for by the province.Probably correctly acknowledged as the "Harvard of the North".

McGill is a wonderful institution of higher education in the heart of Montreal. Students receive an excellent education and get to enjoy living in the middle of a vibrant city. Plus, it costs so much less than universities in the USA.

My first degree is from Concordia, so I expected McGill to live up to its name. So far disappointed with the administration, and the lack of feedback. Most of the teachers are pretty good, but the admin and academic advisers are unreachable.
