University profile Founded in 1827 by Royal Charter, the University of Toronto is now over 175 years old, the largest university in Canada, and the fifth largest in North America. It operates three major campuses covering 2.8 square kilometers of land. At University of Toronto, professors of international calibre bring leading research and scholarship to bear on their teaching and provide opportunities for study and discovery at the forefront of the sciences, social sciences, and humanities.
Undergraduate programs open to exchange students In general, the following faculties are open to exchange students: Faculty of Arts & Science, University of Toronto at Mississauga, University of Toronto at Scarborough, Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education, and Faculty of Music.
Students admitted to undergraduate programs may take graduate courses with permission of the department, if they have acceptable academic background and at least 6 semesters of previous study. The minimum number of courses they must have taken in their major varies by department. Faculty bridging is not normally permitted. Students are usually limited to courses that are offered by their U of T faculty of admission.
Undergraduate programs NOT open to exchange students Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Nursing, Rehabilitation Science/Occupational Therapy, and Bachelor of Education (BEd). The Academic Bridging Program, the Concurrent Teacher Education Program (CTEP), as well as the Co-op (work placement) program at UTSC are also not available to exchange students. Courses in Visual Studies and Drama which have practical components are generally not available. Also, Organic Chemistry courses with a laboratory component are extremely limited. Due to enrolment pressure in our Commerce courses (RSM) at the St.George campus, we are unable to accept most exchange students wishing to do Commerce/Business courses at that campus. However, it may be possible for exchange students to take Business courses at our Mississauga and Scarborough campuses.
