University of Toronto and Ryerson University

It’s academic!  Toronto’s downtown core is home to two world renowned universities – Ryerson University Physiotherapy and the University of Toronto Physiotherapy – and its energized and vibrant student population.

University of Toronto

One of the world’s elite universities, the University of Toronto has been educating students from Canada and around the world since 1827. Today, U of T has over 82,000 students on its three campuses.

The University of Toronto’s alumni have influenced human achievement in every corner of the planet and beyond.  Over 500,000 U of T graduates grace the halls of power; are visible in the media; and diligently at work curing illnesses, advancing business, and improving the world around us.

U of T alumnae can also lay claim to a wide array of accomplishments in the field of research, including insulin and stem cell research; identification of the first black hole in space; and development of the first electron microscope.  Research funding at the University of Toronto far and away exceeds all other universities in Canada.

Ryerson University

With a focus on preparing its students for successful careers in their chosen fields, Ryerson boasts over 65,000 undergraduate students and 2,300 graduate students.  Its main campus surrounds the Yonge-Dundas Square and its acclaimed Ted Rogers School of Management is a stone’s throw away at Bay and Dundas.

As an urban campus, Ryerson has a great many unique advantages.  Proximity to some of the world’s largest companies and one of the world’s largest Stock Exchanges offers business and finance students direct access to the professionals already on the corporate ladder and a firsthand view inside the dynamics of the financial world.

Ryerson has over 100 undergraduate and graduate programs from which to choose. Through corporate sponsorship and government grants, Ryerson is also one of the nation’s leading research universities.

Ryerson University and the University of Toronto graduates occupy places in the highest echelons of power, thought and influence both internationally and in Canada.
