Exchange students

Add an exchange term at UVic to your university journey!

As an exchange student, you can study for one or two semesters at our mid-sized university located in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia.

At UVic, the International Centre for Students (ICS) operates an exchange program for the Faculties of Humanities, Science and Social Sciences, while the School of Business and Faculty of Law operate separate exchange programs.

UVic is just an awesome university in an awesome place.

Why come to UVic on exchange?

  • Immerse yourself in a new culture… and maybe your second language, too!
  • Study with passionate and engaged UVic professors
  • Make new friends from Canada and all over the world
  • Join a vibrant campus community with plenty of clubs and activities
  • Explore the history, beaches, forests, and food of Canada’s West Coast

Start your journey

To study at UVic as an exchange student, you must be enrolled at one of our partner institutions. If your university is not a partner institution, you may be able to apply to UVic as a study abroad student.

I would recommend UVic for the exchange because it’s been a really good experience exploring new environments, meeting new people and learning about new things.
