Where Will You Live

University of Victoria

This is a young university committed to economic wellbeing, technological advances, and social justice. Given degree-granting status in 1963, University of Victoria (UVic) accelerated to become one of Canada’s top research institutions, and it is widely recognized for its civic engagement. It is little surprise that UVic alumni include notable politicians, jurists, and founders of leading tech firms Hootsuite, Flickr, and Slack. 

The charmingly supportive community reaches out virtually in this English language learning experience.
