On behalf of the School of Graduate Studies, welcome to the University of Toronto. We're delighted to have you join us.
I’ve long believed that graduate education is an opportunity to discover your passions, grow as an individual, and decide how best to contribute to society. As you begin these endeavours, I encourage you to make the most of your graduate experience. Engage with our top-ranked faculty, who are immersed in innovative research; connect and collaborate with your award-winning peers in the graduate community; and take advantage of rare opportunities with leading hospitals, industries, community organizations, and educational facilities across Canada and the world. The University of Toronto is committed to providing you with an enriching experience over the course of your graduate program.
In the SGS Calendar, we outline the parameters of your program, the regulations and policies that guide it, and some of the key expectations that will inform your time here. SGS also offers a range of graduate-focussed services — including the Graduate Centre for Academic Communication and the Centre for Graduate Professional Development — that are designed to support you holistically at every stage of your graduate program. These resources are available on the SGS website and the SGS GradHub, our accessible and user-friendly web space for resources, supports, and services provided by SGS and its partners across the University. I also encourage you to read the monthly Gradschool e-news, our comprehensive e-bulletin about key resources and opportunities for graduate students across our three campuses.
Whatever your program and specialization, I hope you will find a way to stay connected to the University’s vibrant communities as you explore and advance your knowledge in the year ahead.
I wish you the best in your studies and look forward to supporting your journey,
