Sneak peek offered at university life

Grade-12 students with offers of admission from the University of Victoria, and other high school students curious about student life on campus, are being invited to “Experience UVic” on May 26. This event will give students and their parents the opportunity to tour the campus, take part in mini-lectures, meet with current UVic faculty and students and learn more about student support services.

They’ll also have the opportunity to spend the night in a residence room and receive advice about choosing and registering for their first-year classes.

Plans for the event are still being finalized, but email notification to students and their families and poster notification to schools in BC, Alberta and elsewhere will begin later this month.

This is the first time in many years that UVic has held a campus visit for prospective students, although it is common practice at other BC universities. UVic does offer campus tours on a regular basis throughout the year to interested individuals and groups, and research shows that students who come to the campus are typically very impressed and much more likely to study at UVic as a result of their visit.
