At the ELC everybody helps you and tries to solve your problems (if you have) in the best way possible. There I felt at home and safe. Everybody are very friendly and helpful.

What's it like living in Victoria?

I had a unique experience in Victoria, I discovered who I am and who I want to be. I changed so much during this programme that when I went to Vancouver, in a big city again, I was counting hours to be back in Victoria. I love every little piece of Victoria and UVic. This travel cannot be better. There, I saw the most beautiful sunset in my life. I want to live there forever.

Best advice for new students

Try to discover something new every single day. Victoria can surprise you and around UVic you have amazing places to go. You’ll live a different life from home and you’ll never forgot. Try to do different things than you are used to, maybe you’ll find new things you like.

Favourite places

  • To meet friends on campus: Felicita's Pub or Mystic Market
  • To study: UVic Library or the ELC
  • To relax: Chapters (Downtown); Beacon Hill Park; Ogden Point (my favourite place on entire world!)
