School counsellors

Counselling, assistance and support
We work to earn your confidence in recommending and sending students to our campus.

We hear all the time from students who received excellent guidance from their high school counsellors, and we’re grateful for your efforts. Regardless of whether a student comes to UVic, we’re proud to work with teachers throughout the world who share our passion for education. Together, we’ll help your students to make the right choices for their futures.

There are a number of ways for high school counsellors to keep up to date on the latest news from UVic, from our monthly counsellor bulletins to the annual UVic Counsellor Conference. 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.

From September to January, UVic hosts special events for high school counsellors on our campus and in cities across Canada. We hope to see you at an event near you!
