As an international student at U of T, you will encounter many new experiences and challenges. Our transition advisors are here to help you adjust to the University and life in Canada.

We can help you:

  • Adjust to Canada – Learn how to form friendships in Canada, succeed in the U of T classroom, live in Toronto’s climate, or deal with feeling homesick.
  • Build your new community – Get involved on- and off-campus, find groups and sign up for activities.
  • Make a plan – Achieve your goals during your time here at the University of Toronto.
  • Find help when you need it – Get access to helpful programs, services and information.
