Camosun College is a public post-secondary institution. The college welcomed its first students in 1971 and adopted the name “Camosun”, a local Lkwungen (Songhees) First Nation name meaning “where different waters meet and are transformed.” Today, Camosun College offers over 160 innovative programs to help meet the needs of students and communities in Victoria and beyond.
The college offers university transfer and applied degree programs, career and trades training, upgrading and preparatory programs, and continuing education. Camosun College has earned an outstanding reputation for teaching excellence through its faculty and staff and is one of Canada’s best learning experiences. The college focuses on teaching practical skills in small classes (30-40 students) to make sure students are ready to start working. Most programs provide the opportunity to gain real work experience through a co-op, internship, or practicum.
Camosun is large enough to provide great services and facilities for a vibrant campus environment on beautiful Vancouver Island, yet small enough to offer students the individual support, care and attention not found in most post-secondary institutions. The college is located in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia. It’s two campuses, Lansdowne and Interurban, serve thousands of learners every year.
