York University, known for championing new ways of thinking, invites international students to apply to the York World Scholars (YWS) program. YWS is hosted by York’s Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies, which is home to a vast array of world-class programs in the humanities, the social sciences, languages and professional fields.

The selection process is competitive.

As a York World Scholar, you will acquire both breadth and depth, knowledge and skill. You will build a solid foundation for your career goals, distinguish yourself with a unique education and benefit from the experience of living in Toronto, Ontario – home to a dynamic economy and its famed multiculturalism. Their Faculty is a microcosm of the world already, with students from 127 countries.
