Financing and awards

How fees are assessed

For graduate degree programs, tuition fees are based on program fees. Program fees consist of regular program fee instalments and graduate re-registration fees. Program fees are paid as full fee instalments (when you are registered in a full-time course load, i.e., 3.0 or more units) or half fee instalments (when you are registered in less than a full course load, i.e., less than 3.0 units). If you are registered in a co-op work term, you will pay a co-op fee in addition to a program fee. See further information about tuition fees through the Graduate Studies web page, as well as the UVic Calendar.

For graduate certificate or diploma programs, tuition is assessed on a per-unit basis; please consult the linked information below.

These programs are led by Emmanuel Brunet-Jailly and operate out of the Centre for Global Studies. Interested applicants should contact with specific questions or enquiries. Consideration for funding is automatic, but priority will be given to those applicants who indicate their interest in their letter of intent. A funding offer is normally included with an offer of admission.
