The main stages of the application (whatever the platform) are:
Step 1. Ensure you have the required scientific level
To learn if the Bachelor of Global Engineering fits your academic strengths and interests, and what documents to prepare, consult the information below.
The CentraleSupélec-McGill Bachelor of Global Engineering will recruit its first class in 2023. Therefore, there are no specific statistics on this program yet. However, we have grouped below the minimum levels of students recruited to the Faculty of Engineering Bachelor programs of McGill University. This information is an indication and not a minimum required level, nor a guarantee that with a higher level than the one indicated you will be retained.
You must submit your academic results (report cards, transcripts, etc.) for the three pre-university years.
Consult the following document: Expected levels and required document
Step 2. Ensure you have the required level of English
In the document below you will find the required level in English, the required certifications and the conditions of exemption.
Step 3. Prepare your personal statement
The Personal Statement is your motivation letter. As the name suggests, it is a personal letter in which you explain why you have chosen to apply for the CentraleSupélec - McGill Bachelor of Global Engineering.
Your Personal Statement is a reflection of your personality and your ambitions. It should be sincere and authentic, and above all, unique. It simply explains your reasons for applying. You can justify this based on your academic background as well as your extracurricular experiences.
If you feel that there are special circumstances that may have affected your education, they should be mentioned in the Special Circumstances section.
It must be written in English and not exceed 2 pages.
Step 4. Consult the list of extenuating circumstances
In considering your application, you may wish to bring special circumstances to our attention. The information you provide in this section will be given serious consideration. However, even if you have one of the following circumstances, you may not wish to disclose it in this application.
For example, if you have a disability, you need not indicate it at this stage, but rather at the time of your acceptance into the program. You may then contact our disability advisor then, or upon arrival at the school, or not at all. This is your decision.
The information you wish to provide will be examined after your written application has been reviewed and before the video conference interview if you are selected for interview. This method allows you to write your personal statement (step 3) without any need to worry about particular circumstances.
