Students studying marine life at Clover Point

At UVic, you'll experience hands-on learning in and out of the classroom. UVic's proximity to the ocean means lots of opportunities for marine studies. Pictured here are students on a nighttime field trip to nearby Clover Point, in downtown Victoria.

Biology is the study of life, and at UVic, we study life at all levels of organization, from the gene to the ecosystem.  Our undergraduate program introduces you to the key fields of biology and then offers you the opportunity to design your own program of study.  Practical skills are developed through course field experience or laboratory work, and in research projects with individual faculty members.
