Undergraduate apply

The Faculty of Education offers undergraduate degree programs in kinesiology, recreation and health education and teacher education (elementary and secondary).

Indigenous Admission

The Faculty of Education is committed to increasing the number of students with First Nations, Inuit and Métis ancestry in our programs. The faculty has developed distinct access initiatives:

  1. Reserved seats: 5% of the positions in all the faculty's undergraduate programs will be held for Indigenous applicants who meet the Faculty of Education's minimum program entrance requirements and Indigenous application requirements.
  2. Exceptional admission: Exceptional students who do not meet the standard faculty requirements may be eligible for admission through a case-by-case review process.

To be considered for distinct access, applicants must submit the supplementary form for Indigenous students. For more information, refer to the University of Victoria Undergraduate Calendar or speak with the Faculty of Education's Indigenous adviser, Nick Claxton.
