Scope out your future home




Research at McGill has led to some of the world’s key discoveries. McGill’s pioneers and current trailblazers have pushed the limits of the unknown, including everything from green chemistry to nanotechnology, the science of food and the secrets of DNA.

Why should you care? Because while many universities reserve top faculty members and research experiences for graduate students, McGill breaks the mould. Our undergraduate students have the opportunity to learn from and alongside professors who are actively contributing to research that is changing our world.
