While Toronto has the most diversity among its faculty members and a slightly better faculty-student ratio (designed to provide students a rough idea of contact time that they expect), McGill leads on research citations per faculty member (whose purpose is to assess research impact), and more international diversity among its students.

Subject strengths

 

In the QS World University Rankings by Subject, Toronto leads in each of the 5 broad subject areas. It is interesting that these rankings also show the two top Canadian universities have similar sets of subject strengths: both two have high score for both arts and humanities and life sciences and medicine. The primary point of difference is in engineering and technology, in which Toronto places in 43rd globally, while McGill trails further behind at joint 76th.

Location

Selecting between these two top universities when you consider to study in Canada also means making an option between their respective cities – Toronto and Montréal. Both two are in Canada’s south-east (Toronto’s a little further south) and both are biggest two cities in the country.

While Toronto is known as Canada’s commercial and financial capital, both cities can be considered as the country’s leading cultural hub with strong cases. Both two are proud of vibrant film, music, nightlife scenes, and high levels of international diversity. It is the fact that Toronto is one of the world’s most multicultural cities.

Many international students choose to study in Canada cause’ this country has a                                                         range of leading universities in the world.
Although Toronto is little more diverse overall, Montréal has a more internationally diverse student community. Montréal is currently placed in 4th in the globe by the QS Best Student Cities ranking, higher than Toronto. According to the ‘student view’ indicator, it’s also the best in the globe. Toronto also has good rank in this indicator, placed in 14th.

Montréal also obtains higher ratings than Toronto for affordability and employer activity. Both cities are in the top 10 for desirability, even though Toronto is ahead on this indicator, placed in 1st in comparison to Montréal’s 10th.


 


And language is one of the major differences between the two cities. While Toronto is English-speaking, Montréal (where McGill is based) is in the French-speaking province of Quebec but most teaching at McGill is performed in English.

Fees & funding

With their stellar reputations, maybe students study in Canada at Toronto and McGill will forgive for their relatively high fees.

Although the fee is high for many students, depending on the program, the University of Toronto commits to offering financial assistance for those pursuing research-based graduate programs. Partial funding is also available. Recently, Toronto also informs that most international students will pay the same fees as domestic students for PhD programs (not including certain programs) from autumn 2018.

The entrance policies are slightly different at McGill University, Quebec province’s residents can receive discounted fees. The fees for students studying in Canada at this university also depend on the program.
