The Summer Abroad programs are designed to enrich students’ academic lives by providing an exciting and educational international experience. Students complete full-year University of Toronto undergraduate degree credit courses from the Faculty of Arts & Science that are relevant to each location. Relatively small classes (about 25 students on average) are taught by University of Toronto professors or faculty from the host university. All classes, with the exception of language courses, are taught in English.
Applications are now open!
Site-specific information sessions will be held at Woodsworth College in January. General information sessions at UTM and UTSC will also take place in January.

Cancellation of Hong Kong Summer Abroad Program for 2020
(November 6, 2019) After careful consideration, Summer Abroad has decided that the program in Hong Kong will not run in 2020. The safety of our students while they are abroad is our top priority. We have been closely monitoring the situation in Hong Kong and due to the uncertainty around possible disruption to local services and infrastructure we have determined that it would be prudent to suspend the program for a year. We look forward to resuming the program in Hong Kong in 2021.
