How many courses per semester for university?

A photo of 6x7 6x7
Hi there,

I am planning to apply to U of T, and was wondering how many courses one takes per semester. Also, if those courses change per semester, or if they stay the same. By that, I mean, do you take 10 courses per year, take the first 5 in the first semester, and take another five in the second? Or do you just take 5 courses throughout the whole year. Thanks!

Typically 5 courses/sem for a total of 10 courses/year, though you can also overload (ie. take 6 or 7) or do 6 and 4 courses (depending on whether your mandatory courses allow you to do that).

And keep in mind U of T charges a flat tuition fee regardless of the number of courses you take. Normal course load is 5 per semester, engineers might take 6 or 7

Okay, I know this is stupid to ask, so 10 different courses per year then?
I know UWO offer 5-6 courses, but they stretch for the two semesters, so they are technically "10-12 courses"

So do you mean that, or just 10 different courses?

Yes, 10 courses per year. If they are full year courses then you will probably have fewer hours of class per week, so will take more classes per semester.

Ah I now I see. The full year courses count as two courses then. Thanks!
