• UVic on the Peninsula

Each term we offer a selection of lectures and short courses in Sidney, most of which take place at the Mary Winspear Centre, 2243 Beacon Avenue, Sidney BC.

To avoid disappointment, please register early! Any course that does not reach its minimum enrolment 15 days in advance of its start date will be cancelled.

SAGE Study Group

The most active component of SAGE is our study groups. Study groups are not taught by instructors; rather, a facilitator assists in coordinating the presentations of group members and in moderating the discussions. An important aspect of study groups is their small size (maximum 15 participants). Group members quickly get to know each other, and learning takes place in a relaxed, friendly and supportive environment. There is a limited number of fee waivers available for all study groups. Study groups happen through your initiative, so if there is a subject you would love to learn more about and you are willing to facilitate a group next term, please give Amy Errington a call at 250-721-8827.
