School counsellors

There are a number of ways for high school counsellors to keep up to date on the latest news from UVic, from our counsellor bulletins to our annual UVic High School Counsellor Conference and Counsellor Brunches. We do our best to keep in touch with counsellors and value the feedback you provide to us on how best to meet students' needs.

If you have specific questions or would like to book an appointment with one of our recruitment officers, please email or call us at 250-721-8949.
