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:

  • 2022 Times Higher Education World University Rankings: First in Canada; 18th in the world
  • 2022 US News Best Global Universities Rankings: First in Canada; 16th in the world
  • 2021 Times Higher Education Global University Employability Rankings: Top 12 worldwide in alumni employability
  • 2019 Reuters’ annual ranking of 100 most innovative universities: First in Canada; 27th 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. This commitment assumes that you will first access the government aid you are eligible for through your home jurisdiction (e.g., Ontario Student Assistance Program [OSAP], Student Aid BC). If you are in financial need, you will have access to resources that will help.

We assess financial need based on OSAP. Those whose assessed need is not fully covered by government aid will receive additional funding from us.
