Program Description:

University of TorontoToronto_1

The University of Toronto was founded by royal charter in 1827 as King's College, the first institution of higher learning in Upper Canada.  It assumed its present name in 1850 when it became a secular institution.  Regarded today as the top university in Canada, its main historic St George campus, is located near the central business district of Toronto on 71 hectares that surround Queen's Park, which contains the Ontario Legislative Building.  There are two other campuses at Scarborough and Mississauga north east and south west of Toronto respectively.

The University has about 67,000 students from over 150 countries and approximately 18,000 staff.  There are 13 faculties, four schools and various institutes and centres associated with the University.  It receives the largest research funding in the country.  It makes claim to such things as being the source of influential movements and curricula in literary criticism and communication theory, known collectively as the Toronto School; the birthplace of insulin and stem cell research; the site of the first practical electron microscope; the development of multi-touch technology; the identification of Cygnus X-1 as a black hole; and the theory of NP completeness. 
 

Did you know...

Unlike most North American institutions, the University of Toronto is a collegiate university resembling those of the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford in Britain. The system emerged in the 19th century, as ecclesiastical colleges considered various forms of union with the University of Toronto and preserving religious traditions in a secular institution meant a federal collegiate model.
