Faculty of Education : 13.0 Teacher Education Admissions
High school applicants applying for first year should refer to Undergraduate Admission for further details. Students who are not admitted directly from high school are encouraged to complete year one requirements in another faculty at UVic and to apply for year two entry.
Existing programs can be modified on the basis of previous university-level course work and experience. The Department will determine what credit, from UVic or other institutions, may be applied to the degree program. Those whose studies commenced more than 10 years ago are also referred to Limitations of Credit for Certificated Teachers.
While not a requirement for admission, students must complete a Criminal Record Check in compliance with the BC Criminal Record Review Act before they can be placed in a field experience. Students are responsible for providing authorization for the review to the Teacher Education Office upon request. Students who do not complete the review will not be permitted to undertake field experience. Costs related to the review are the responsibility of the individual student. Contact the Teacher Education Office for more information.
Students with criminal convictions are advised to contact the manager of teacher education and the BC Ministry of Education for clarification of their status before undertaking a teacher education program.
