McGill University | Canada
McGill University is an English language university located in the centre of one the largest French-speaking cities in the world. A vibrant metropolis of 3.5 million inhabitants, Montreal is a modern city with a distinctly European flair. Founded in 1821, McGill owes its existence to James McGill, a Montreal fur trader, merchant, and civic leader, who died in 1813, leaving an endowment for the founding of McGill College. McGill's modern facilities and innovative ideas attract internationally respected teachers and researchers, as well as first-class students.
