Admission

Admission is limited to doctoral students and is through any one of the collaborating units. Students must therefore apply to and meet the admissions requirements of one of these units. General information about graduate study at the University of Toronto is available from the School of Graduate Studies.

Students applying to the Collaborative Program should typically have a strong BA degree in the appropriate field; however, students who need to improve their grasp of the relevant language(s) or to broaden their philosophical training can expect to have the opportunity to do so in the early years of their enrolment.

All students admitted to the Collaborative Program are provided with a guarantee of ‘full funding’, that is, an adequate financial aid package for the normal duration of their studies, along with the opportunity to apply for various internal and external fellowships. Students will also have the opportunity to gain significant teaching experience, particularly in the later years of their work.

International applicants are welcome! The Canadian visa process is generally unproblematic for foreign students admitted to the Collaborative Program. At present students from five countries besides Canada are enrolled.
