Are you thinking about coming to Toronto ?

The University of Toronto has a long tradition in graduate research in physics.  Since 1900 a total of 1,190 Ph.D. degrees have been awarded in Physics. Our graduates have come from all parts of Canada and the rest of the world. They have had a major influence in the world of physics and science as a  whole. For more information about some of our distinguished alumni, see Nobel Prize Winners and the History of the Department of Physics.

Our current graduate enrollment (2017/18) totals 217 students in programmes leading to the M.Sc. and Ph.D.

2012: 16 PhDs     2013: 34 PhDs      2014: 24 PhDs       2015: 27 PhDs    2016: 19 PhDs    2017: 21 PhDs   2018: 16 PhDs

Typically about 25% of our graduate students are women. For more information about women in physics research at U of T, see Women in Physics.

Building on the strong tradition of the last 100 years, the Department of Physics at U of T is continuing with great energy. Many new young, world-class physicists are being hired in tenure-track positions and setting up exciting research programmes. It is a great time to come to Toronto to do your graduate studies in Physics. For more information about life as a graduate student, see the Graduate Student Handbook. We hope you will join us!
