About University of Victoria

The University of Victoria came into being on July 1, 1963, but it had enjoyed a prior tradition as Victoria College of sixty years distinguished teaching at the university level. The University is a great place for learning. It’s not surprising that Maclean’s magazine consistently ranks UVic as one of the top comprehensive universities in Canada. It combines the best features of both small and large universities.

The University has more than 21,800 undergraduate and graduate students with 900 full-time faculty members. It is ranked 115th in the world and the top university in Canada, across all sciences, for international research collaboration (Leiden). UVic delivers a wide variety of academic programs ranging from law to nursing. The university offers more than 80 undergraduate and 160 graduate programs. The students at the UVic are tackling big issues and benefiting from a wide variety of support resources, like dynamic, hands on experience, research, also including one of Canada's largest co-operative education programs.

UVic attracts international students (nearly 4,000 in total, including almost 3,000 students here on study permits from 118 countries around the world) and faculty from around the world. Discovery, creativity and innovation come naturally here, in a vibrant Pacific Rim community rich with international perspectives.

Sustainability is a key part of the curriculum in nearly every major field at UVic, from science and engineering to social sciences and law. The Gustavson Business School makes sustainability a core component of its curriculum as well, and is home to two research centres devoted to sustainable economies and business practices. Across the board, UVic research is at the forefront of sustainability breakthroughs for changing the world. The university is a global leader in climate and ocean sciences, and sustainable energy research as well. UVic was also selected to host and lead the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions (PICS), a province-wide hub for internationally leading climate change research.

The UVic campus is a vibrant community rich with Indigenous and international perspectives. It is located in the beautiful city of Victoria, on Canada's west coast and is well connected to downtown Victoria by several major bus and bicycle routes. Beside this, the campus offers ample parking and an accessible and pedestrian-friendly environment.
