Reasons to study in Toronto

Our new, state-of-the-art campus in the heart of the city was designed in 2018 with music and film studio space to facilitate our programs to continue to meet industry needs.

Surrounded by shops, restaurants and entertainment venues, it is easily accessible by subway and transit to all parts of the city. Our partnerships to other local studios within walking distance of the campus supports the exceptional experience Trebas’ Toronto campus has to offer.

Location

Toronto is the capital city of the province of Ontario. It is located along the Northwestern shore of Lake Ontario - 1 of the 5 ‘Great Lakes’ and the largest group of freshwater lakes in the world.

As a central economic engine of Canada, this dynamic, multicultural city has great connections to all other cities in Canada and the United States by air, road and rail.

The Trebas Toronto campus is just a 2-minute walk from Wellesley subway station. Union station, the hub of all travel in and out of Toronto, is just 6 subway stops south or a 30-minute walk through the heart of the city.

Surrounding Union Station, you will find Old St. Lawrence Food Market, BMO Stadium - home to Toronto Football Club (TFC), Scotiabank Arena, home to hundreds of concerts and sporting events each year, and the Rogers Centre, home to the Toronto Blue Jays, a baseball team.
