The International and Exchange Student Services Office provides assistance and support to international students at UVic as well as to students wishing to study abroad.
Services for international students include an orientation program for all newcomers as well as workshops, information sessions and ongoing support from Student Advisors throughout the year. The IESS Office also operates a Buddy Program that matches new international students with returning UVic students for mentorship, friendship and cultural exchange. More information about services for international students is available at <www.iess.uvic.ca>.
Students wanting information on study abroad and exchange opportunities should check the IESS website. Students are also welcome to drop in to the IESS office with further questions.
More than 100 exchange opportunities in over 30 countries exist at UVic through various faculties and departments, including International and Exchange Student Services (IESS).
The IESS Exchange Program has partner universities offering undergraduate courses of interest primarily to students enrolled in the areas of humanities, social sciences and science, although students from other faculties may also be eligible to apply. Application for an exchange through the IESS office is open to full-time UVic students who are currently registered in courses and who have completed at least one term. Important procedures for applying, including eligibility requirements, are available at <www.iess.uvic.ca>. Students should also refer to Credits in Established International Exchange Programs for more information on credit recognition from international exchange programs.
Students interested in coming to UVic on an exchange program should apply through their home university. Further information for incoming exchange students is available at <www.iess.uvic.ca>.
