Fees & Dates

Important notes:

  • We reserve the right to change fees, schedules and programs without notice and to cancel courses if enrollment is insufficient.
  • All fees are listed in Canadian Dollars (CAD) 
  • Since January 2022, the English Language Centre at UVic is offering all our open programs face-to-face on campus. Please note that due to COVID restrictions there may be adjustments made from our typical offerings and course descriptions. Most notably, to keep everyone safe, our socio-cultural activities must conform to health and safety guidelines. Currently we cannot offer activities that require large groups in close contact or inside "food" events. Activities like campus and downtown tours, hockey games, sports, and discussion groups are all going ahead. In our ELPI program, we have been offering four levels that are mainly general focus. As on-campus enrolment numbers increase, we look forward to being able to offer both academic and general focus classes at all 6 levels.
  • Homestay is no longer available for the 2022 April ELPI program and 2022 ELPI Summer program, and has limited availability for the 2022 September ELPI program. Learn more about 2022 Homestay availability
