Events

What do you want from university? A dream career? The skills to change the world? An environment where you can take your passions to the next level...or discover new ones?

Join us at an upcoming event to get the answers you need and find out where a degree from UVic can take you.

Information sessions

Our online information sessions are open to everyone who's thinking about studying at UVic in the future. We hope you'll join us!

  • Discover UVic - Learn what it really means to be a UVic student. Instead of talking about how to get into university, we'll explore the possibilities and what your education can be. You'll hear about our co-op program and why hands-on learning is so important, how you can engage with your surroundings, and how our community can inspire you to succeed.
  • IB Webinars - If you're taking International Baccalaureate (IB) courses, learn about admission requirements, scholarships and transfer credit for IB students applying to UVic.
  • Information sessions for international students - If you're studying at a high school outside of Canada, learn about the benefits of attending UVic. We'll cover everything from working in Canada before and after you graduate to undergraduate research and experiential learning.

Every session includes an opportunity to have your questions answered by UVic student recruiters.

Schedule

Events are scheduled in Pacific Time. Registration closes two hours before an event.
