McGill University, with its main campus situated in downtown Montreal, is considered one of Canada’s best universities. There are 35,500 students with 20% being international, the highest of any Canadian research university. It is a cosmopolitan institution which hosts students from all over the world. McGill is proud of its wide array of historical figures, such as Ernst Rutherford, famous for his discoveries on radioactivity and the atom’s nucleus, James Naismith, who invented the game of basketball, and Star Trek’s William Shatner. W&M students are able to apply to one of McGill’s faculties (i.e. arts or sciences) but may get permission to take a course outside that area. The main language of instruction at McGill is English, but many content courses are offered in French as well.
The tuition exchange agreement between the College of William & Mary and McGill University allows W&M students to pay their regular tuition to W&M while taking classes at McGill. Students will pay housing, meals and fees on site in Montreal. Students not selected for the exchange and out-of-state students for whom direct enrollment is preferable have the option of applying directly to McGill as visiting students; directly enrolled students pay tuition to McGill.

|Term||Year||App Deadline||Decision Date||Start Date||End Date|
|NOTE: Applications are first reviewed by the Reves Center, and students nominated for the exchange program are notified. Application materials are then sent to the school abroad (and the school abroad often requests additional materials at this time). When the school abroad completes their application review, students are then notified of the final acceptance decision. This timeline varies greatly from school to school. In rare cases a student nominated by the Reves Center will not be selected by the school abroad to attend their university; the Reves Center would then explore further options for the student. 2. Any start and end dates listed are to serve as a guide for general planning, but specific dates are subject to change and may not include mandatory orientation programs or exams.
