Please Note:  As of May 12, 2021, due to the ongoing pandemic conditions around the world, the University of Toronto has made the difficult decision to extend the suspension of University activity to international locations by students from September 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021. We are opening applications for this experience as it occurs after the current suspension of University activity to international locations. However, the university will continue to review the situation regularly over this period and our ability to run this experience will be tied to pandemic circumstances, public health guidelines, global travel restrictions, and Global Affairs Canada travel advisories change. 

The University reserves the right to cancel the international experience in alignment with travel restrictions and health and safety guidelines at any point. Please review the Terms of Participation and Refund & Cancellation Policies before submitting your application. 

We’ll continue to update this page with the most current information we have. You can find the most up-to-date information here. If you have questions, please email utmabroad@utoronto.ca
