Our ELC is one the largest language departments in Canada, with 40 years of experience offering English programs on campus at the University of Victoria, a medium-sized university located in the west-coast city of Victoria , British Columbia.  UVic consistently ranks among the Top Comprehensive Universities in Canada for excellence in teaching, degree programs and research.  Approximately 19, 000 degree students and 2500 ELC students study at UVic each year.

About the ELC

The English Language Centre is located in one of UVic's newest buildings, equipped with 16 classrooms and 2 computer listening labs.  ELC students attend classes throughout campus and have unlimited access to computer and language laboratories, libraries and recreational facilities, allowing them to become part of an exciting student community.

ELC programs offer 20-30 class hours per week for high beginner to university preparation-level English students.  All of our instructors are university graduates with international teaching experience.  Our curriculum is designed to meet the needs of international students, and each instructor is dedicated to creating a friendly and supportive environment inside the classroom.  Small class sizes guarantee that each student receives lots of personal attention in class. 

UVic is a beautiful, friendly and relaxed place to study, featuring modern facilities on a park-like campus full of gardens and wildlife.  As ELC student Juliana Souza says, Walking around UVic one can find gardens with the most beautiful flowers and also huge sport complexes, fitness centres, a movie theatre and pubs.

Social and Cultural Activities

Outside of classes, ELC programs include a free activity calendar, as well as activities offered at an additional cost, to ensure that our students can practise their English in real life with each other, and with Canadians.  The ELC has a staff of Cultural Assistants (CAs) to organize and lead these activities on campus and around Victoria. CAs are Canadian students who, along with host families, teachers, and the ELC staff, are there to help our students feel like Victoria is their home away from home.

Students receive a calendar of activities and events at the beginning of their program.
