As a leading research institution, the University of Toronto receives applications from all over the world, and it’s our job to identify applicants who will thrive in our graduate programs. ECE’s trainers share valuable knowledge and experience with our admissions staff during our annual workshop on international credentials. In 2017, Martha Van Devender gave our staff a thorough grounding in the educational systems of Mexico, Brazil, and Colombia. Not only was Martha extremely knowledgeable, but she was also engaging, and funny, livening what could have been a dry topic.
