Following the great success of our previous Summer Academies, we are happy to announce the dates for McGill Summer Academy 2020!
From July 5-18 and July 19-August 1, students in grades 10 and 11 from across the world will have the opportunity to participate in classes, workshops, and social activities introducing them to university life, McGill, and Montréal – all while being hosted in a McGill Residence!
Our 2020 Open Days will be taking place on 1 and 2 July and 18 September. Please encourage your students to explore our University, meet current students and staff and find out what it’s like to study with us. In addition to taking part in these University-wide Open Days, some academic departments hold their own open days earlier in the year. These are ideal for students who already know what courses they are interested in, and would like to find out more.
