UVic international student resources

Our academic and research activities make a vital impact worldwide. 17 percent of UVic’s student body is international, represented by 110 countries around the world.

Once you’re admitted to UVic, the International Centre for Students team can support you before you arrive and help you get settled in Victoria. We also support international students visiting UVic from other institutions.

Iranian student mental health bulletins

Iran has recently experienced significant social and political transformations, evoking a mix of emotions. For some, especially those contending with immigration challenges, the impact has been even more profound. That's why these Iranian students put together these handouts to support Iranian students and to boost the mental health within our community.
