English Language Requirements
All undergraduate applicants must provide proof of English proficiency unless they meet one of the exemptions listed on this website. Only official test results sent from the testing center will be considered. IELTS and TOEFL results must be sent to McGill electronically from the testing center.
With the exception of language courses, the language of instruction for most courses at McGill University is English; however, you may make arrangements to write term papers, examinations and theses in English or in French. While French is not a requirement, there are many opportunities for students to learn French while studying at McGill. Students are also permitted to submit any coursework in French.
