A McMaster University education enables students to develop a set of life and learning skills that promote a continuing ability and desire to learn, and a set of technical and professional skills that permit a range of career choices. McMaster's excellent undergraduate academic programs leave graduates well prepared for their personal and professional lives and with a continuing ability and desire to learn. For students outside Canada who are considering coming to McMaster, the Office of International Affairs can provide you with information about the university, programs, admissions requirements, education costs, scholarship opportunities, the application process and timelines, and the surrounding community.
McMaster University's campus, which is restricted to pedestrian traffic, is at the western end of Lake Ontario. Area attractions include Cootes Paradise, the Bruce Trail, the Niagara Escarpment, the Waterfront Trail, and the Royal Botanical Gardens. The University is minutes from downtown Hamilton, Ontario, and the activities that a major city has to offer. Buses from the region's public transit system make frequent stops on campus, facilitating travel between McMaster, Hamilton, and the surrounding area. The campus has grown immensely since the MacMaster University officially moved to Hamilton in 1930. The original six buildings, all still in use, were added to over the years, and now there are 55 buildings on McMaster's campus and development shows no signs of slowing down.
