English language proficiency

An English language proficiency test is not required. Partner schools will nominate candidates for exchange only it they meet UOIT’s English language proficiency requirements. 


Official letter of acceptance

After we have received and assessed your exchange application, we will send you an official letter of acceptance. You will need this to get a Canadian entry visa/Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) and/or study permit.
