Safe, friendly, and beautiful are three words full-time students often use when describing the University of Victoria (UVic). With a maximum of 18 students in each class, you can expect to experience the personalized and welcoming community firsthand. What’s more, nature abounds on this park-like campus. Outdoor activities are common—it’s no surprise, as the campus reflects the city around it. Victoria is considered one of the best cycling communities in Canada. Activities occur throughout the year, as the city has some of the mildest weather in Canada. By taking a quick 15-minute bus ride, you can enjoy all the amenities and charm of downtown Victoria. Better yet, take a leisurely 20-minute stroll from campus to reach the ocean, a wonderful park, and shops and cafes selling everything from local produce to coffee.
