McGill University First Year Courses

Hey guys. I’m a bit confused about McGill’s system. I’m an international student, so my English may not be perfect.

If a transfer student were to be admitted to McGill with not enough credits to start in U1 (24 apparently), but he had managed to transfer basic courses such as Calculus 1, Stats 1 or Microeconomics 1, would he have to start all over from first year even though he had the credits from the courses he would take in U1? Or are those the kind of courses he would take in his first year?

I would really appreciate if someone would take the time to help me. Thanks.

  1. I'm not 100% sure but it you're given credit for those specific courses you won't have to take them again. You'll just need to take enough first year courses to get the 30 credits necessary for first year (so 2 first year courses)? I would imagine that for the rest of your courses, as long as you have the prerequisites you could take 2nd year courses. So basically you would have 8 2nd year courses and 2 first year courses.
    You'd have to check that with your academic advisor though.
