“I love the multiculturalism of U of T.”

The University of Toronto is a world-renowned school so I knew I was applying to a leading graduate institution [Psychology program].

When I applied, I knew that there would be no limits to what I could do at the U of T. I have never encountered a situation where I could not explore my hypothesis because of lack of equipment or resources.

If you want to look at a particular clinical population, you will always have full access. U of T has developed a unique system of interlinking the research hospitals associated with the University; it is home to one of the largest and most cutting-edge networks of hospitals and research facilities in Canada.

I love the multiculturalism of U of T: every culture is represented here. Diversity improves the research environment because there are so many different perspectives on the same question. That is the best environment for research.
