1University of Toronto ScarboroughYour Students Can Get a Head Start with our Health Sciences StreamPursuing a career as a doctor, nurse, physical therapist, dentist, physician assistant, pharmacist, or other health-care professional is a big goal. U of T Scarborough’s Health Sciences stream is designed to prepare students for career success and provide a competitive advantage.

Alongside a Bachelor of Science degree, students earn a unique certificate that will expand their knowledge and cultivate skills like leadership, communication, equity, and critical thinking—areas that are essential in health care. This certificate is open to Canadian high school applicants only. International and/or transfer students can apply for non-health sciences stream options.

The certificate can be paired with a co-op program which provides hands-on experience through paid co-op terms with some of the top hospitals, companies, and research institutes in the region, such as SickKids, CAMH (Centre for Addiction and Mental Health), University Health Network (UHN), and Baycrest. The Health Sciences Stream is available with the following admission categories: Life Sciences, Physical & Environmental Sciences, and Psychology & Health Studies. Learn more Health Sciences at the University of Toronto Scarborough.Admissions Prerequisites Updates at U of T ScarboroughPrerequisites for the Life Sciences and Paramedicine admission categories, in addition to ENG4U are now SBI4U and one 4U math (SCH4U recommended).

1Faculty of Arts and ScienceExplore the Colleges at the Faculty of Arts & ScienceEvery Faculty of Arts & Science student at the St. George campus belongs to a college – a friendly and supportive community of students and scholars. The college system dates back to U of T’s earliest days and is at the heart of the Arts & Science experience. Students can indicate their college preferences when they apply and many are unsure about which colleges to select. To help applicants and counsellors better understand the college system, the Faculty has developed a self-guided virtual tour of each of the seven colleges, where you can explore their unique spaces, histories, cultures and traditions, as well as the helpful services they offer.Tour the collegesSelecting College PreferencesWe’ve updated the college membership process. Students will no longer be required to select their top three colleges on their Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) application; they will now have the option to select “no preference” instead. Students can still choose up to three colleges in order of preference, or they can select “no preference”. The “no preference” option will be available for choice one, two and three, allowing students to combine their college preferences with “no preference” for the remaining slot(s). Students are encouraged to research the colleges and consider factors like residence, membership size, scholarship opportunities and more before applying.

Trinity College and Victoria College have additional supplemental applications to be filled out after a student has submitted their OUAC application.
