U.S. & International Students

Presbyterian College invites applications from international students and from the United States. Students from outside of Canada pay their tuition directly to Presbyterian College even though they take the majority of their first and second year classes at McGill University. This provides a significant savings for international students while providing an excellent academic program.

The application to Presbyterian College is a dual application with McGill University. Students must apply to both the College and McGill University. If you wish to inquire about studies at Presbyterian College as an international student, please follow the instructions in the sidebar. Once we have that information we will be better able to advise you.

Please note that in addition to tuition fees there are additional fees such as mandatory health care.

Proof of proficiency in English

The language of instruction for most courses at McGill University is English; however, students may arrange to write term papers, examinations and theses in French, except in courses where the language itself is the basis of the course.

TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language)

Non-Canadian applicants whose mother tongue is not English, must have a score of 577 on the paper-based version of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), or a score of 90, on the new Internet-based iBT composite score.

A minimum score of 21 is required in each individual component of the TOEFL iBT (reading, writing, listening, and speaking).

Permanent residents of Canada whose first language is not English may also be required to submit a TOEFL.

IMPORTANT: To ensure TOEFL scores are received by McGill, students must note the university’s institution code, 0935, on the TOEFL exam.
