​Attending University

Students wanting to attend an Ontario University need to, at minimum, meet program entry requirements. Students are strongly encouraged to begin researching programs and schools of interest during their grade 10 year. It is highly recommended that students and parents/guardians familiarize themselves with the application process, important dates, campus visits, and scholarships and financial aid.


If you would like to visit an Ontario University, but are unable to do so, please take a virtual tour​


Students should visit university websites (www.myblueprint.ca, https://www.ontariouniversitiesinfo.ca/) to learn about programs and admission requirements.


A list of collaborative (joint) programs offered by Ontario universities in collaboration with Ontario colleges can be accessed here.


This year's Ontario Universities Fair will take place September 27 to 29, 2019, 10am-5pm daily at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The OUF is a free event where you can interact with representative from all 21 Ontario universities under one roof.
