UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO

Each fall, we host Fall Campus Day open houses to give students an opportunity to discover the exciting things happening on our campuses.

Fall Campus Week runs from from Saturday, October 17, to Sunday, October 25. Students only need to register once to gain access to the whole week. Each day will have a different focus, and students will get to chat with current U of T students and professors, take virtual tours, and learn all about life at U of T. 

Fall Campus Week is a great opportunity for students to get to know the University of Toronto. Whether they're planning to apply this year or in a few years, we encourage students to attend.

We also host a series of webcasts to help students discover the right path for them, complete with lots of Q&A. They can sign up for a general session or a session that's focused on a specific program area.

UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA COUNSELLOR'S E-NEWS

Application for admission to the University of Alberta opened October 1 and is available at uab.ca/apply. Students are encouraged to apply early as admission is competitive and space in our programs is limited. Applications will be reviewed as they are received and offers are administered on a rolling basis. If a student is not immediately admissible to their program(s) of choice, they will be reassessed if/when new information is received or if our admission parameters change.

To assist students with the application process, we have updated two of our key websites, uab.ca/start and uab.ca/apply. We are also creating a series of videos to guide students through the application process, starting with ‘Preparing to Apply’, which can also be found on uab.ca/apply. In addition, we are hosting Submitting Your Application workshops to further aid students and answer their questions.

Here are a couple quick reminders about the University of Alberta application:

  • Students self-report their own marks.
  • Students are asked to report all grade 11 and grade 12 courses.
  • Students can pick two programs on their application.

Students can apply for residence on the same application.
