University of Victoria – Post Secondary Education in Victoria BC

by Jodi Baker on September 8, 2011

The University of Victoria (UVIC) is the second oldest public research university in the province of British Columbia.  Sitting to the northeast of Victoria on the borders of the municipalities of Oak Bay and Saanich, UVIC is a research intensive facility in one of the most desirable locations in Canada.

UVic Ranks among the World’s Best Universities

The University of Victoria was ranked 130th in the world and 6th in Canada in the Times Higher Education’s annual World University Rankings released September 15, 2010. UVic was the top-ranked university in Canada without a medical school. There are nine Canadian universities in the top 200.

UVIC attracts students with a diverse range of programs including Earth and Ocean Sciences, Engineering and Law programs.  The Cooperative Education program is also popular with students and employers alike.

The Vikes Athletic program has experienced considerable success over the years, winning 65 Canadian University National Championships.  UVIC Vikes, men and women, train and compete in:

  • Basketball;
  • Cross-country/track;
  • Field hockey;
  • Golf;
  • Rowing;
  • Rugby;
  • Soccer, and
  • Swimming.

As well as being one of the foremost research institutions in Western Canada, the University’s legal centre provides free legal assistance to the disadvantaged.  The UVic Law Center is the only full-time, term clinical program offered by a Canadian law school and reflects the faculty’s emphasis on integrating legal theory, legal skills, and community service.

UVIC also owns and operates the Vancouver Island Technology Park, a state of the art commercial research facility located on 35 acres just outside the city of Victoria.  This facility focusses on fuel cell, new media, and lifescience/biotechnological research.

The University of Victoria has a lot to offer to people who are living in Victoria, and those who come here to study and gain an education.
