Academics

Student 

Immerse yourself in the evolving world of progressive academic study during your degree program. At the University of Toronto, graduate students benefit from working and studying with educators and researchers at the forefront of their fields. Whether taking the lead on global health challenges like HIV/AIDS and malaria, improving health care access for women, or promoting participatory democracy, our faculty members open up vast areas of academic exploration you can be a part of.

Collaborative Specializations

Unique to U of T is our range of collaborative specializations involving the cooperation of two or more graduate units (departments, centres, or institutes). In order to participate, you need to be enrolled in a graduate degree program.

Progressive Professional Programs

Make a strong impact on the public or private sector by enrolling in one of our innovative, interdisciplinary professional programs. Conducted within a fertile environment of research and scholarship, our professional programs can open new d​oors of opportunity for professionals in their fields.

We offer more than 50 professional graduate programs in established fields such as health sciences, management, and engineering, and many other programs unique to U of T.

Professional & Academic Skills Training

Effective communication skills are as important as the ideas you want to communicate. Get advanced training in academic writing and speaking through the Graduate Centre for Academic Communication program.

To complement your academic focus, our Graduate Professional Skills (GPS) Program enhances your communication, planning, and time management skills, and trains you to take an entrepreneurial approach to your future. Both courses are offered in friendly, accessible settings on all campuses.

Resources for International Students

If you've just arrived at U of T, make your first stop the Centre for International Experience (CIE). Staff and student volunteers can help you find temporary and permanent housing, introduce you to fellow students, get you oriented, and more. They'll even store your luggage temporarily.

The CIE also offers a number of orientation activities that run from mid-August to mid-September. These include information seminars, workshops, field trips, and cultural events.

Take Your Studies Global

Have you thought about studying abroad? From international research collaboration, to networking for future degrees and projects, studying abroad can take your academic career literally to new places. As a U of T student, you can choose to go on an exchange for a summer, session, or year.

Depending on your program, you may be approved to go on exchange for up to three sessions. For more information, please contact the Centre for International Experience (CIE).
