General Requirements

  • Bachelor's degree or equivalent with standing equivalent to a University of Toronto mid-B or better in final year.  Please refer to the OISE/UT 2015-2016 Graduate Bulletin and the Graduate Admission website for further information.
  • You should have experience working with groups of children or learners, preferably at the age level you wish to teach.
  • Applicants from outside Canada, whose primary language is not English, must demonstrate English proficiency to acceptable standards through an acceptable language proficiency test.  Please see the English Language Proficiency guidelines for more details.  

 

A note about liberal arts and science content:
Occasionally an undergraduate degree may not be considered an appropriate basis of admission because it does not contain sufficient liberal arts content. Courses with a significant professional training component, practical component, studio component, performance component, or sports component may not be counted as liberal arts courses. The established standard is at least 75% liberal arts content. For more information, please inquire at admissions.oise@utoronto.ca.
