Yes you may. The tests are offered monthly at major centres across Canada and there is an extra test offered at UVic twice per year, in fall and spring.

We may accept results from other tests on a case-by-case basis. Please contact our office at teacherprod@uvic.ca with your request.

Yes you may, but please be aware that the content is based on the BC curriculum.

Yes, but it’s essential that you receive permission from your Education Department adviser in order to ensure that your course load is manageable.

There are two possible entrance points: July and January. It isn’t possible to start in September because there’s a prerequisite for that course which is only offered in summer. Please note that the two summer courses are face-to-face and the fall and spring courses are online to accommodate teachers from out of town.

The application fee is $50 and the University of Victoria sets the tuition fees. Please see the tuition website for more information. 

Close to the end of your course, you will be sent an email from our office asking you to submit a bursary application form online. We will then process these requests and the bursary cheques will be mailed. The amount of money available for these bursaries is dependent on the funds received from the Ministry of Education, and may fluctuate from year to year. In the past, the amount we have obtained has typically been around $300 per student per course.
