What we look for

U of T student

We look for curious, well-rounded, and enthusiastic individuals, who wish to take advantage of the personalized and interdisciplinary education that we offer.

The small size of our CERES allows us to foster a holistic graduate experience within the larger community of the University of Toronto and the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy. In our students, we hope to encourage more than academic achievement, and we welcome applicants from a wide range of backgrounds. An ideal applicant to our program does not hold specific qualifications but rather an open and motivated attitude. We embrace our students’ diverse and unique research interests, and we are committed to helping you with along your future path, whatever it may be.
