If you are planning to join the University of Toronto,here are important admission requirement.

The first step is to have to prove you are good in English language.

English is the language of instruction and examination at U of T, and success in our degree programs requires a high level of English language proficiency.

If English is not your first language (i.e. is not the first language you learned at home as a child), you will need to provide evidence of adequate English facility for admission consideration, unless you qualify for an exemption.

You may qualify for an exemption from the English facility requirement if one of the following applies to you:

  • You have completed/are completing four or more years of full-time study in a recognized Canadian school that teaches in English
  • You have completed/are completing four or more years of full-time study in an English language school located in a country where the dominant language is English
  • Your first language is French and you have completed four or more years of full-time studies at a Canadian school

You must be sure to provide your full academic history on your application for admission and provide all relevant transcripts to U of T (after you have submitted your application), so that we can automatically consider you for an exemption on the basis of these criteria.
