Thinking of visiting the University of Toronto for a semester or two? Explore the many study opportunities we offer and find a program that works for you. Each summer, Woodsworth College also admits international visiting students who wish to complete one or more courses in the Faculty of Arts and Science.
To facilitate your integration, we offer a number of pathway programs, such as the International Foundation Program (at New College, St. George), Green Path and Facilitated Admissions – International Recruitment (at UTSC), and Academic-Culture-and-English (at UTM).
|International Foundation Program (IFP)||The International Foundation Program (IFP) is a unique offering that combines conditional acceptance to the University of Toronto with intensive English language instruction and academic skills development instruction, combined with for-credit courses. The IFP is available to academically qualified international students whose English proficiency scores do not meet the University of Toronto’s direct entrance requirements. Successful completion of the IFP guarantees admission to the Faculty of Arts & Science, the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape & Design, or the Faculty of Music.|
|Green Path Program (UTSC)||The Green Path Program (UTSC) helps academically qualified students from mainland China hone their English skills and begin adjusting to Toronto’s culture before starting classes at University of Toronto Scarborough in the Fall. It consists of a 12-week, full-time program run over the summer months.|
|Academic Culture and English (ACE@UTM)||The Academic Culture and English (ACE) program is designed for academically qualified students who have been admitted to UTM but who require additional English language skills training. Completion of ACE@UTM may be a condition of an offer of admission. ACE@UTM is specifically designed to target the development of communication, research and study skills.|
Nearly 1 in 5 U of T students come to study from abroad, hailing from over 150 countries. There are many support services available on all 3 campuses to facilitate the move and integration, ranging from English language and academic support to transition and immigration advising – all accessible through the Centre for International Experience at Cumberland House.
The University of Toronto is located in the heart of downtown, with many housing options nearby. Students have the option of picking one of our 7 On-Campus College Residences or even Off-Campus Housing. More questions about living in Toronto? Let us help you.
