Admission Criteria

Admission to Summer Abroad programs is competitive (decisions are not made on a first-come, first-served basis and there are not necessarily spots for all applicants). Applicants will be assessed on the strength of their overall application including:

  • Academic record over the past 12 months
  • Relevance of the course to the applicant's program of study
  • Personal statement addressing specific questions (which will be listed in the application)
  • Additional responses to questions regarding adaptability

Note that Woodsworth College may request additional documents in certain cases. 

Admission notification will be issued for most programs in late February or early March.  Until you receive this information your admission to the program is not guaranteed and so you should NOT make any travel plans (e.g. booking your flight).
