We have made some small changes to our 2021 English for Global Communication and ELPI-O dates to accommodate the "Orientation Week" that immediately precedes the program start date.

Orientation Week will consist of:

MONDAY A live "Mix and Mingle" social activity which will be your first chance to meet other students in your program and start practicing your conversation.
WEDNESDAY An invitation to a self-guided training session on the course space, which is called "Moodle".
THURSDAY A live session introducing the technology used in the program including the virtual classroom (Zoom) and the course space (Moodle).
FRIDAY Moodle course site opens and students have full access to explore materials.

Prior to Orientation Week, students will receive emails explaining how to set up their UVic email account and how to write their placement test, as well as invitations to the virtual classroom and to the technology orientation.

We are committed to getting our students off to a strong start in our online programs! If you have any questions about Orientation Week or any other aspect of the program schedule, please contact us.
