Welcoming and diverse community
UVic is a destination university for people all over the world. More than two-thirds of our students come from outside Victoria.
We take pride in helping everyone feel welcome – undergraduate and graduate students, international and Indigenous students, young and old, on-campus and distance learners.
Whether you come to our faculty from down the street or across the globe, you’ll find a warm welcome and supportive network here.
Just ask any student, "why UVic?" They'll tell you, "the people."
