Welcome to the Green Path

Green Path – China is an innovative admissions program for incoming undergraduate students from the People’s Republic of China. It immerses them in an advanced Canadian-style learning environment and leads to a degree from the University of Toronto. The program was launched when 15 high-achieving students from top-tier Chinese high schools came to Canada in 2005 to study at the University of Toronto Scarborough. Since then, hundreds more of China’s top high school graduates have taken advantage of this unique opportunity to realize their educational and career-path ambitions.

This 12-week summer experience transforms people’s lives, turning qualified high school graduates from China into first-year university students at Canada’s highest ranked university. Green Path participants adapt to their new life in Canada while engaging in an intensive study of English language, life skills and academic research skills. After successful completion of the program, students begin their first year of undergraduate studies, where they are well supported by University faculty and staff. 

More than 2,650 students have successfully studied at the University of Toronto through the Green Path program during its 15-year history. The University has worked to establish meaningful relationships with partner schools and with parents, to make sure that Green Path students get off to a great start in Canada.
