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

The University of Toronto is consistently ranked as one of the world’s top universities. In 2015, the Times Higher Education World University Rankings put U of T at #1 in Canada and 19th among all of the world’s universities. The U of T was also ranked #1 in Canada and #10 in the world in the 2014 Global Employability University Survey and Ranking.

Since 1827, students, faculty and graduates of the University of Toronto 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 the 3 campuses offers different learning environments, experiences and recreational opportunities.

Student Financial Support

For Canadian students, the University of Toronto is committed to the principle that no student admitted to a program will be unable to enroll in or complete the program due to a lack of financial means. The commitment is based on the assumption that you will first access the government aid for which you are eligible.

Financial need is assessed based on the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) and those whose assessed need is not fully covered by government aid will receive additional funding from the university.
