STUDENT NEWS AT U OF T
U of T Engineering Academy supports students whose final year of high school was disrupted by COVID-19
The University of Toronto’s Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering is launching a new program designed to give incoming students all the material they need to shine in their first-year courses – particularly those who faced pandemic-related disruptions to their high school education.
The U of T Engineering Academy is an optional and not-for-credit program that is free to all incoming students in the fall 2020 semester. Participating students gain access to a suite of established learning modules in math, physics and chemistry that they can move through at their own pace.
U of T plans ‘gradual, safe return to our campuses’ in fall semester with mix of in-person and virtual learning
The University of Toronto’s fall semester will emphasize a mix of in-person and virtual learning opportunities for students that delivers a world-class academic experience – all while respecting public health measures required by the evolving COVID-19 pandemic.
New and returning students can expect to see smaller, on-campus seminars, classes and labs alongside larger online or remote classes and lectures, said U of T President Meric Gertler in a letter today to the university community.
The University of Toronto’s School of Continuing Studies has launched a new fund to help those experiencing financial difficulties due to COVID-19 pursue their education and upgrade their skills.
The Opportunity Fund will provide eligible students a one-time bursary of up to $750 towards the cost of a School of Continuing Studies course. New and existing students are encouraged to apply, including students from other provinces.

ONE UNIVERSITY, THREE CAMPUSES
The college system
All students within the Faculty of Arts & Science on the St. George campus are affiliated with one of seven colleges. These colleges have deep roots in the history of the University of Toronto; the college system dates back to the earliest days of the university and remains one of its distinctive features. The colleges are a home base for their students and provide the advantages of a closer-knit community experience within a large research university.
