Summer schools

International summer programs offer UVic students the chance to broaden their degree, learn a new language, and experience a different culture. 

For more information, visit the program websites below and contact the program coordinators.

Summer schools are different than the Exchange Program, in that they are shorter in duration and students must pay fees directly to the host university. To be eligible to receive credit at UVic, students must obtain a letter of permission before beginning their summer school program. For more information, please contact your UVic academic adviser.
