Health Insurance and Services

We want all students to be healthy and happy during their time at the University of Toronto.

The English Language Program requires all applicants to pay for health insurance when registering for full-time study. All international students must purchase the insurance provided by the English Language Program. It is your assurance of adequate health coverage in case of medical emergencies during your time in Canada.

Health insurance costs are outlined on the Dates and Fees page, and on the Registration Form. The coverage is provided through Guard.Me.

Please note: Insurance coverage is only provided from 12:01am on the Sunday before your course starts until 11:59pm on the Saturday after your course finishes. If you arrive early or depart later, you should ensure you have additional coverage. The insurance company Guard.Me is able to provide additional coverage

Full-time English Language Program students also have access to the University of Toronto Health Service on campus.

From January 2018, students purchasing Guard.Me insurance coverage will also benefit from the Keep.MeSafe service. This service offers 24-hour access to professional counsellors in the language and cultural background of your choice. The counsellors are able to assist with a variety of issues affecting mental health. These may include dealing with depression, loneliness, culture shock and substance abuse.

Your safety and well-being is our priority.
