Uoft in Canada is notorious for high achieving students, competitiveness, and the toughest scales of bell curve grading. If you have a near perfect GPA, uoft is the school for you. Not to sound discouraging, but from personal experience I have had peers suspended for not being able to academically keep up. Be wise and clear when selecting a major/specialization. Keep in mind that the standard of teaching is very research based. In fact, it is what is categorized as a “ research based school”. By all means, apply to this school if you anticipate pursuing graduate schooling. If not, you are frankly better off doing a specialized degree at York, Ryerson. If you have plans of doing only a Bachelor of Arts at uoft, without the intention of pursuing graduate schooling; Don’t. Save your money, go to a university that offers the same BA for much lower tuition costs. Another thing, consider costs, and more importantly mental health support provided by other universities.
Something I did not particularly like; although there is a community, it’s often hard to make friends due to the competitiveness and competition among peers. That’s not to say you won’t make friends. You will, but “choose” wisely.
All this to say, personally, my academic path benefited from going to Uoft, but I do believe that you can receive similar education without the competition/ the long nights/ the tough grading scale at a university like York or Ryerson or Western. Nonetheless, I do recommend Uoft IF you are pursuing higher specialized education. After my HBA (3 majors – criminology, political science and sociology) at UofT, I pursued a specialized certification in legal research at UofT and went on to pursue my JD at UofT (although currently on academic leave). My academic journey doesn’t end there.View more
I am a recent graduate from the Scarborough campus of UofT where I completed a double major in Psychology and Neuroscience and a minor in Applied Statistics. The University of Toronto offers a truly boundless experience in terms of programs, professors, and prospects. The courses were very interesting and not only did they provide me with knowledge but also writing, critical reading, and presentation skills. As a student interested in the field of research, I found lab experiences both on the Scarborough as well as St. George campuses, where I was able to run experiments, gather literature, and network with lab members. There are also multiple clubs that one can get involved in that cater to a wide range of interests. In terms of opportunities and career prospects, the co-op program offers a phenomenal platform to kick-start an individual’s career and start gaining professional experience. Additionally, as an international student from India, I never once felt like I’m away from home because I found a large and supportive international community on campus. The only aspect I thought that can be improved is the accommodation on campus because the on-campus residence was only offered for the first year.
Overall, UofT provided me with a very rich education experience and equipped me with a host of essential skills.
Being in the psychology program has taught me so much about myself and the people I interact with. Learning about the history and many branches of how it relates to the individual, made me truly appreciative of how unique people are and similar in some ways. The classes are exciting and really draw one in to want to know more about the topics being taught. The only thing I would recommend is to make the classes more hands-on than textbook-heavy. The student life is amazing. The campus is clean, and spacious and has many resources available. I would say that the school is very international because of the diversity in people and diversity in the courses pertaining to what is being taught outside of Canada. There is an ensured success from completing a psychology degree. There are many jobs available and they can range from many different areas of work. In conclusion, my overall experience is amazing and I look forward to graduating next year from a school I am extremely proud of attending.View more

UofT is the best University in Toronto, the best university in Canada, the best university in North America, the best in the Northern hemisphere, and the best in the world and the universe at large. It’s simply the best, to say the least!View more
The institution is averagely fine with modest facilities and competitive packages. The rates of pay are not badly off. There are insufficient credit facilities for needy students and this is a hindrance to many students from completing their courses.View more
