Incoming International Students
Supplemental Letter for Study Permit
Incoming international students who require a supplemental letter for their application for a Canadian Study Permit may forward their request to Chemistry Graduate Office.
International students who accept our offer of admission will be reimbursed up to $2,000 in travel expenses, after they have registered as a student at the University. This is applicable to new students who applied from outside Canada. Applicable expenses include: one-way economy airfare (if more economical to obtain a return airfare, you will be compensated for half of the fee), baggage fees and airport shuttle bus/public transportation fares. However, reimbursement excludes meals and fees related to immigration, such as visa, study permit fees and medical bills.
Please retain all original receipts including boarding passes and fill out the Expense Report (PDF).
Social Insurance Number
In order to arrange payroll, all students must hold a Social Insurance Number. Please visit Service Canada when you arrive to apply. A supplemental letter from the Department is required with your application. Please contact the School of Graduate Studies to obtain the letter.
International students' tuition fees include coverage from the University Health Insurance Plan. For details about the coverage, please visit their website.
Opening Bank Account from Abroad
Incoming international students may open a bank account from abroad.
Centre for International Experience
The centre provides services that promote and support international education at the university. The website contains very useful information for all UofT students.
