Program requirements

General program requirements

Please see BCYC general program requirements. We offer the entire program by distance except one on-campus 10-day seminar with pre- and post-course work.

Technical requirements

We’re committed to providing a high-quality learning environment for you. All distance courses are complemented by a web-classroom. Each web-classroom contains a course overview, assignments, communications tools, and a number of other valuable resources. You’ll find all the communications tools you need to interact with your fellow students.

All students admitted to a SCYC undergraduate program or taking child and youth care courses must have regular and reliable access to an up-to-date computer and high-speed internet for the duration of their program of studies. Students will also need to ensure their computer or other devices have the technology to allow them to participate in webconferencing and to record digital and audio for some assignments. Students require a UVic Netlink ID with a UVic e-mail address.

Once your course has begun, please use the web-classroom tools to communicate with your instructor and fellow classmates.

Please see the UVic Learn Anywhere online resources page for details.
