Discover UVic: USA

November 30, 2019

If you're studying at a high school or college in the USA, take a trip to Canada on Thanksgiving Weekend and see what UVic has to offer.

  • Start your day with a bus tour of Victoria, including sights such as the Fairmont Empress Hotel, Craigdarroch Castle, Fisherman's Wharf and Victoria's stunning Inner Harbour. The tour is free for all attendees. Space is limited.
  • Learn about admission and the application process for students from US high schools, including the differences between American and Canadian post-secondary institutions and how UVic recognizes AP/IB credits.
  • Find out more about UVic's co-operative-education program and opportunities for you to work and study abroad.
  • Meet current students who will answer your questions about moving to Victoria, including what it's like to live and study at UVic.
  • Go on a campus tour led by a current student who can tell you all about UVic.

See how UVic can help you accomplish your goals, connect with other future UVic students coming from the US and picture yourself as a member of our community.
