Travel Lectures

Travel the world without leaving Victoria. 

Are you curious about the world, but don't have the time to travel? Or maybe you're planning a trip to a new country, and want to know what to expect before you land? Or maybe you just want to learn about a new culture? No matter the reason, the travel lectures offered by Continuing Studies at UVic will inform and delight you.

Led by expert instructors—and accompanied by multi-media presentations—these lectures will guide you through well-known destinations and "hidden gems" from around the globe. You'll be introduced to little-known aspects of culture, geography and history.
