We are always interested in talking/meeting with potential students and researchers interested in joining our team!

As a starting point, please review the wealth of information on the Geography Graduate Program website and the Graduate Studies at McGill website. These contain detailed information about the enrollment process, life as a graduate student, funding opportunities, and application deadlines.

  • Your CV
  • A statement of research interest(s)
  • Level of experience with programming and/or statistics
