“Studying English at UVic was an amazing experience. I had the chance to meet great people from all around the world and learn about their cultures. I had so much fun that at the end of which program I wanted to go back in time and do it all over again.”

What's it like living in Victoria?

It is impossible to not fall in love with Victoria. My experience was amazing, I met great people from all around the world, and I learned much more than English. The city is beautiful and the people are lovely.

Don’t be afraid to explore Victoria and meet people. You will go back home with great stories and memories!
