Discover learning that shapes you. And your world.

Remember the first time you realized learning could be fun? That it wasn’t just about grades or approval, but the sheer joy of new knowledge? Isn’t it time you felt that way again?

With more than 200 individual adult education courses from art to Zen, Continuing Studies at the University of Victoria can help you rekindle that feeling. It’s a unique opportunity to participate in small classes, big experiences, and with exciting people who share your passion.

Continuing Studies at UVic is for people who are open to getting a new perspective on a wide range of topics—people who are open to thinking about new ideas, or familiar ideas in a new way. We’ll help you discover the learning experience you’ve always wanted.
