Take your first step on the path to success.
Do you want more out of life, but aren't sure how to get it? Then take a look at our career and personal development courses. These courses are designed to help you look at the factors—internal and external—that might be holding you back from personal success, and how to fix them. All you need is a desire to learn.
University 101 and 102
These non-credit courses are for you if your economic and social circumstances pose obstacles to university education (low income, mental health challenges, single parenthood, homelessness). The classes are taught by UVic instructors on topics such as:
- critical thinking
- creative writing
- local and world history
- classics of English literature
- art history
Continuing Studies and the Faculty of Humanities at UVic sponsor these courses. There are no tuition fees, but you must still apply and be accepted into the University 101 program.
Enhancing and Enriching Your Life
What do you really want out of life? These courses will help you discover ways to enrich your career, your personal life and more. In three individual sessions with a counselor/life coach, you will develop life goals by exploring your interests, needs, values, passions, priorities, personal characteristics and lifestyle preferences.
