Life as an international student

The University of Toronto welcomes students from all over the globe, and approximately 21% of the student body is international, representing 168 countries and regions.

As an international student studying at UofT, you can use their International Education Centre (IEC), who have compiled information to help you transition into life at the University. When you start you’ll attend O-Week, which provides new students with an introduction to academic and social life on campus to help with their transition.

UofT offers students countless student life opportunities, including more than 1,000 student organizations, athletic teams and academic associations. Taking part in clubs, programs and events outside the classroom is a great way to meet new people and make your time at Toronto as rewarding as possible.
