Looking for opportunities to keep engaged with the McGill community (and beyond!) and learn during the summer? Here’s a list of potential ways to stay sharp and fresh during the summer months.

International Student Services

Are you away from home? Check out these events designed especially for international students! See the International Fireworks Competition on July 10th with other McGill students from around the world.  Maybe you’ll meet a language partner or a new study buddy!

Lifelong Learning Courses

Want to do a fun course instead of one for career or academic purposes? Look no further than the Lifelong Learning courses at the School. They are affordable and an interesting option to learn and expand your horizons.

Library Workshops and Tours

The library often has interesting workshops – from research methods to 3D printing! Visit their page often for updates.

Sustainability on Campus

Interested in sustainability? There are many groups on campus with volunteering and workshop opportunities. Learn how to grow veggies or fix a bike!


Open to students enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program, these webinars can help you develop study strategies before the crunch of Fall hits.

Visit Montreal’s Botanical Gardens

As a student, you’ll get a discount on admission – go to rejuvenate your mind! Although the Biodome is closed for renovations, the gardens are a great place to explore and learn. Tell a McGill SCS friend!
