Fostering a global community
UVic attracts international students (nearly 4,000 from 118 countries) and faculty from around the world. Discovery, creativity and innovation come naturally here, in a vibrant Pacific Rim community rich with international perspectives.
Agreements with higher education institutions in 60 countries give our students a wide range of choices to study or work internationally.
Each year, more than 800 UVic students also pursue formal international learning experiences including field schools, exchange programs, practica and co-ops.
UVic is also a hub for international collaboration. Our researchers publish a higher proportion of internationally co-authored scientific papers than any other Canadian university.
