We can’t wait to welcome you here. The University of Victoria accepts applications online for graduate studies. Below you’ll find an overview of the application and admissions process, from planning to next steps once you're admitted.

At UVic, we have a unique approach to handling your application for admission. Your application and supporting documents are first processed by our central Graduate Admissions and Records Office. Where minimum (Faculty of Graduate Studies) standards are met, your application is forwarded to your academic unit for further consideration.
