Program Details


Group of students outside chatting

Please note that Summer ACE@UTM 2023 will be offered in-person only. Students participating in this program will be expected to be on-campus Monday to Friday from July 4 until August 25. 

We highly recommend the Summer program for most students as it allows them to complete the language requirements prior to beginning their academic studies in September. We encourage interested students to complete their registration as soon as possible to reserve their space in the program, as spaces fill up quickly. A waitlist will open up when the program becomes full.

Academic English Course 

All Summer ACE@UTM students will complete the Academic English Level 60 course. The final grade in this course will determine whether the English Language requirement for the University of Toronto has been satisfied. It will also determine your eligibility to take courses at U of T Mississauga in the Fall-Winter session. Students in Summer ACE@UTM attend this course daily, Monday to Friday, for 3-4 hours per day. 

ACE+ Programming 

This additional programming offered exclusively to ACE@UTM students is led by our ACE@UTM Peer Leaders. Through ACE+ we offer sessions on choosing and enrolling in courses, how to get involved in student life, understanding the many support services available at UTM, academic skill development, cultural competency training and more. The goal of ACE+ is to help provide you with additional support, as you prepare for and begin your studies at UTM, by focusing on building social connections, developing additional academic skills and helping to familiarize you with UTM. Students who complete all ACE+ sessions will receive a notation of completion on their University of Toronto Co-curricular record (CCR).

An important note for international students: You must have a valid study permit in order to start your studies at UTM, including Summer ACE@UTM. We strongly recommend that all students apply as early as possible as processing times vary and can be longer than expected. We also strongly recommend you apply online, if you can, as soon as you have all the necessary documents prepared. If you need assistance with your study permit application, or have questions, the UTM International Education Centre can assist you. Please reach out to them at
