A Pathway to the University of Toronto for International Students

The International Foundation Program (IFP) is a unique offering that combines conditional acceptance to the University of Toronto with intensive English language and skills development instruction, combined with for-credit courses. The IFP is available to academically qualified international students whose English proficiency scores do not meet the University of Toronto’s direct entrance requirements.

Successful completion of the IFP guarantees admission to the Faculty of Arts & Science, the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering, the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape & Design, or the Faculty of Music.
