History

As one of the world’s top educational institutions, the University of Toronto (U of T) is a dynamic destination for unsurpassed excellence.

We are consistently ranked as one of the world’s top universities:

  • The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2020 put us at #1 in Canada and #18 among all the world’s universities.
  • The QS Graduate Employability Rankings 2019 ranked us #1 in Canada and #12 in the world.

Since 1827, students, faculty and graduates of U of T have been making history and mapping the future. At U of T, exceptional students become extraordinary people by seeking to develop their minds, bodies and spirits through connections with new ideas, people and places.

Studying at U of T is about choice. Entering first year gives you access to more academic programs than at any other Canadian university.

Choice extends to the more than 1,000 student organizations, athletic teams and academic associations, and each of our 3 campuses – St. George Campus, University of Toronto Mississauga and University of Toronto Scarborough – offers different learning environments, experiences and recreational opportunities.

Student Financial Support

For Canadian students, we have a long-standing commitment to promoting access through student financial support. If you are in financial need, you will have access to the resources that will help you meet your financial needs. The commitment assumes that you will first access the government aid you are eligible for.

We assess financial need based on the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP). Those whose assessed need is not fully covered by government aid will receive additional funding from us.
