Learning Resources

Providing the resources to support your English studies at UVic is our job. We take your success seriously!

When studying on campus at UVic, you'll be surrounded by amazing places to study outside of class. Every ELC program begins with a campus tour that will introduce you to the facilities and learning resources you need to make the most of your time studying with us. Some of these resources are open to all UVic students and others are just for ELC students. Try them out!


McPherson Library

McPherson Library

The library is a quiet place to study on your own, or with friends at the library café. This is the academic centre of UVic where you’ll be studying alongside Canadian students and can take out books, use the computers or do homework.


Computer-Assisted Language Laboratory (CALL)

Full-time staff support our students in this specialized listening lab that is open to all UVic languages students. Bring your headphones to study on your own or bring a friend and work together!

Due to COVID-19, CALL is temporarily closed.  

ELC Study Zone

The Study Zone is a website created by ELC teachers for ELC students, but it is used by students and teachers around the world. Explore the lessons and exercises grouped by level, and practise, practise, practise!
