What is International Education Week?

Every November, countries around the world celebrate International Education Week (IEW), an opportunity to promote the benefits of international education and mobility.

"IEW will showcase the impact that international education has in preparing Canadians for the world and supports Canada's efforts to engage effectively on the international stage. It is a reflection of the spirit of cooperation and collaboration among various stakeholders across Canada to join forces to highlight the importance of international education."

With our International Plan and a community of students, faculty and staff travelling around the world, UVic is dedicated to being a leader in international education.

During IEW the winners from the "Picture Your World" and World at UVic photo contests will be displayed in the Welcome Centre.
