About McGill University

Founded in 1821, McGill University is the oldest public university in Montreal. The primary instruction language is English, though recently, about 20% of the students mentioned French as their mother tongue. About half of Montreal population speaks French as first language. About one-quarter of the student population is international.

The university has 10 schools and faculties ' science, music, medicine, management, law, engineering, education, dentistry, arts, environmental and agricultural sciences ' which offer more than 300 programs of study. Over 80% of McGill University's graduates are much sought after by big employers immediately after graduation.

In 2017, Montreal was ranked as the most student-friendly city in the world, as it's infused with various cultures and arts. Cost of rent is significantly lower than in other cities where major universities are located, while many aeronautical firms, financial companies, pharmaceutical firms, and international institutes are based in the city, providing employment opportunities for the students. As a fun fact, McGill also claims to be the inventors of basketball, hockey, and modern American football.
