2. Should i apply PR from UK or should i apply for PR when i am in Canada

Thanks and Regards
Rohit

1. The school you select will have no impact on a PR application.
2. You should start reading here to familiarize yourself with the different immigration routes available to you:

The short term study in Canada will not qualify you for PR.

You may also want to read through this section of this site to learn more about skilled worker applications.

I can't tell you if you should submit the application before or after. You really need to review the links I provided first to determine if you qualify and have sufficient points to apply for immigration. Typically you need a few years of work experience before you can apply.

Keep in mind that it will take you some time to put your application together (i.e. collect the supporting documentation, take the required English tests, etc.) and it will take many months to a few years for the application to be processed once it's submitted.

Both schools are excellent.

McGill is in Montreal, and while the program is in English, you will find a sizeable population who are French speaking, so it may come down to if you would be comfortable in your day-to-day life (grocery store, shopping etc) dealing with some French only speaking situations. There are many anglophones in Montreal, but this is just something to be aware of.
