The Edge is here
Students and researchers from the University of Victoria are driving change around the world, powered by the UVic Edge—that unique combination of dynamic learning and vital impact embedded in our extraordinary learning environment.
Partner with us on solutions to the issues that matter to people, places and the planet.
Connect to a global research hub
Partnerships play a key role in generating vital impact, from scientific and business breakthroughs to achievements in culture and creativity.
Our researchers publish a higher proportion of research based on international collaboration than any other Canadian university.
And our work with business and community partners—at home in Canada and in communities around the globe—has helped make UVic a leader in a wide range of fields, including Indigenous languages and law, clean energy, earth and oceans, climate change, high-energy physics and health.
Discovery and innovation in the public good
One in three UVic students participates in co-operative education, alternating academic terms with paid work in relevant areas, and building careers and hands-on experience through one of Canada’s largest (and longest-running) co-op programs.
UVic fosters entrepreneurship and commercialization support across the academic spectrum—which means our faculty or graduates could be the most important business partner you'll ever meet.
Creativity and innovation come naturally here on the edge.
