Apply to Visual Arts

Looking for our Masters program?

Applying for our undergraduate visual arts programs involves two steps: an application, and separately, a portfolio submission. An application is not required for the Minor in Visual Arts. See below for application instructions and links.

Students new to UVic

Learn everything you need to know about becoming a UVic student. Walk through the application steps, from admission requirements to submitting your application to reporting your grades and accepting an offer letter.

Current or returning UVic students

Students transferring from other faculties or programs should apply to the Visual Arts program through my UVic application by signing in with their NetLink ID and passphrase.

Portfolio submissions

Use this online form for portfolio submissions to the Department of Visual Arts. As part of the application process, you are required to upload ten digital images or five images and a video link. It is strongly suggested that you have those materials ready prior to filling out this form.
