University of Toronto
The University of Toronto (UofT) is Canada's leading university and the fifth largest in North America. It is currently ranked 29th in the world according to the World University Rankings.
UofT is situated in the heart of Toronto, a booming centre of industry, trade and culture. People from all corners of the globe have settled here in this thriving community with its beautiful parks and architecture and a standard of living that rivals major cities such as New York or London. Students will find a wide range of activities to occupy themselves outside of their studies with various forms of entertainment from theatres to restaurants and nightclubs.
The exchange agreement between King's and the University of Toronto allows for up to 20 Full Year Equivalent (FYE) places for each institution. This equates to 20 students going for a full academic year OR 40 students for a single semester OR a mixture of the two.
Eligibility for King's students
Important: Final decision on students' study abroad application to their host institution rests entirely with that host institution. Students must also meet their departments’ academic requirements to obtain final departmental approval to study abroad. It is usually at least a 60% average prior to departure, however this can vary amongst departments. Students should double check with their Study Abroad Tutor if they are unsure of their academic requirements.
King’s students that wish to study abroad at this institution should check the ‘Undergraduate options by department’ page to see if this institution is indeed an option for them.
Individual campus spaces are agreed on with the University of Toronto on an annual basis. Spaces for the Rotman School of Commerce are limited, with an even split between remaining campus choices.
Once allocated to the University of Toronto in our internal application, all students* will shortly after be prompted to send in their ideal campus in order of preference (St. George (Arts and Humanities), St. George (Rotman School of Commerce), Missisauga, Scarborough). Campus allocations are decided jointly between King's and the University of Toronto, with preference given on academic needs, followed by strength of applications.
*With the exception of students on the Economics and Management programme, who due to module requirements can only study at the Scarborough campus.
Estimated living costs
Please see here for current estimated living costs, but actual expenses may vary depending on student lifestyle. The cost of travel to and from the country is not included in these estimates.
A reminder that King's students on exchange are not required to pay tuition fees to the host university, but you may incur administrative and/or orientation fees at the host. There may also be mandatory insurance costs, and transcripts may incur a fee.
Please also note that, if required, student visas often require applicants to supply evidence of financial support throughout the duration of the study abroad programme. Sometimes this will mean showing financial evidence for a specific amount, so please pay attention to the advice on this from the host institution.
