Application & Admissions

The online application deadline for September 2017 admission is January 20, 2017. 

The Department of Geography & Program in Planning offers admission in September only. There is no January admission. Applicants must first apply to the School of Graduate Studies (SGS) through the online admissions application which is housed on a secure server in the University of Toronto. Your application will be considered only after you have entered your personal and academic information in the online application, submitted the application fee and submitted all required documents. This includes letters of reference submitted online by referees and scanned copy of your transcript. Official transcripts (sent directly to us by your university) will be required only from successful applicants. Read more information about this in ‘Application instructions‘ under ‘transcripts’.

Statement on Diversity

In all our programs we welcome students with diverse educational backgrounds and work experiences aligned with planning; especially those who belong to groups that are currently underrepresented in planning academia and practice, from either domestic or international arenas. We take pride in our efforts to bring a true diversity of perspectives on planning and related issues into our classrooms to enrich our program by creating an intellectual environment where diverse opinions about what planning is and should be may thrive. We especially welcome applications from racialized persons / persons of colour, women, Indigenous / Aboriginal People of North America, persons with disabilities, LGBTQ persons, and others who may contribute to the further diversification of ideas.
