6.3 General Information

6.3.1 Language Policy

The language of instruction at McGill is English. Every student has a right to write term papers, examinations and theses in English or in French except in courses where knowledge of a language is one of the objectives of the course.

Entering students should be aware that most of the clinical affiliation placements undertaken in the province of Quebec, including those in Greater Montreal, require proficiency in both French and English.

It is recommended that students who lack proficiency in English or French avail themselves of the opportunity to take an intensive English or French as a second language course, prior to, or early in, their program of studies.
