Conditions of Participation

Conditions of Participation

As a condition of enrolment all students will be required to provide written acknowledgement and consent of risks and terms of participation (which include agreeing to abide by the University of Toronto's and the host institution's rules, regulations, and code of conduct and acknowledging their personal liability).

Students will also be required to complete a pre-departure orientation; obtain and provide proof of adequate health insurance; obtain all appropriate travel documents (visa, passport, etc.); and read all materials provided by the Professional and International Programs office (including email, admission documents and Student Handbook). The University of Toronto does not arrange medical travel insurance or flight cancellation insurance; this is the responsibility of each program participant.

Some courses may require students to complete an assignment or attend lectures before the start of the program.

Students who wish to enrol in an on-campus summer course are responsible for ensuring that this course does not overlap with their Summer Abroad course. The Faculty of Arts and Science will not make special arrangements for on-campus final exams that conflict with a student's Summer Abroad course.

Students are expected to accept responsibility for the preparations for their study abroad experience so as to foster self-reliance after arrival. In this regard, all communications regarding the program (e.g. course enrolment, accommodation arrangements, etc.) are made directly with each student. We cannot discuss details with non-participants, including parents or guardians (except in the case of students under 18), unless the student agrees to such disclosure and is present at those discussions.

NOTE: Class attendance including attendance on all field trips in the Summer Abroad program, is mandatory.
