Resources for Counsellors

Small group lecture

We value the partnership with secondary school guidance counsellors throughout the application process. We rely on school counselling staff in all jurisdictions to reinforce the university’s application requirements and deadlines and to highlight our admission requirements.

Admissions and Program Updates


New Programs

The Technology, Coding, and Society (TCS) major program focuses on the impact of technologies, including hardware, platform and associated software, on people and on society more generally.

The Chinese Language and Culture major program is for advanced language learners who would like to improve their written and oral communication skills in both academic and professional settings. (NOTE: The Chinese Language Minor is intended for students who have near-native proficiency level in Chinese so that they can be fully engaged in course materials and lectures conducted in Chinese.)

Cinema Studies will now be offered as a major program, in addition to the existing minor program. 


Program Changes

No program changes have been announced for the 2022-23 academic year.

Admission Update Regarding COVID-19

We understand this is a stressful time for students preparing for post-secondary studies. We will continue to monitor the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the school year and will be as flexible as possible throughout the admission process. Here is some guidance and pieces of advice:

  • We've updated our Resources for Counsellors page to provide you with guidance to support students who have applied to U of T as well as those who are exploring their options.
  • The University of Toronto has renewed its commitment to inclusive learning environments, transformative research and a safe, healthy community. Find out more about how we're doing by visiting the UTogether website.
