Anyone wishing to study in Canada who is not a Canadian citizen or permanent resident must obtain a Study Permit and in some cases a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) or an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) before entering Canada. Prospective students should contact the nearest Canadian visa office as soon as they receive their offer of admission as some countries have long processing times.
To apply for a Study Permit, you may be required to provide your offer of admission to the University of Toronto and information about the expected time needed to complete the program. This will be sent to you when you accept your offer.
International students are not provided with health insurance through the Ontario government. You must enroll in the University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP)
