eligible to enroll. Achieving these marks does not necessarily guarantee admission
to the program in a given year.

Step 4: Consider Elective Course Options
1. Courses that can help fulfill the Breadth
Requirement:
•
The required courses for your programs of interest
will fulfill some of your breadth requirement.
•
You don’t have to complete the Breadth requirement
in 1st year, but it can be a good opportunity to take
an elective course in a category you need

Step 4: Consider Elective Course Options
1. Courses that can help fulfill the Breadth
Requirement:
4. Introductory courses that will give you
additional Subject POSt options:
•
The required courses for your programs of interest
will fulfill some of your breadth requirement.
•
•
You don’t have to complete the Breadth requirement
in 1st year, but it can be a good opportunity to take
an elective course in a category you need
It is important to have several options for Subject
POSts at the end of 1st year in case your first choice
is not what you expected or you do not achieve the
grade needed to enter the program
•
Taking an additional introductory course allows you
to explore other interests you may have
2. Small class experiences – 199 courses,
FLCs, Foundational Year Programs, eg.
UC One
5. Explore something that wasn’t available
in high school or that may help towards
future goals:
• These are unique opportunities only available in your
1st year, including a chance to get to know your
professor - each class usually has no more than 25
students
•
The advantage of being at a university as large as
U. of T. is the huge selection of courses
•
Professional programs (medicine, law, social work
etc.) generally focus on marks and not program
choices, but may suggest some courses to take
during your undergraduate years
•
199 courses are designed to help fulfill the breadth
requirement and you should ideally choose one in
a category that is different from your main
programs of interest
3. Skills development courses – e.g. writing
courses and languages:
•
•
Courses such as Effective Writing (ENG100H1) or
Writing Essays (INI103H1) can help build skills that
will be valuable for other courses you take
U. of T. offers over 40 different languages to learn
6. Anti-Calendar - available online at
www.assu.ca:
•
Consider what other students have thought of
courses
•
The Anti-Calendar is published by the student
union and provides student evaluations of courses
and professors to help students make informed
choices
