If you're a student from another institution and want to take a University of Victoria child and youth care course, you must apply for admission to the university as a visiting student.
A letter of permission from your current university's adviser must be sent to UVic Admissions, and a copy faxed to the School of Child and Youth Care adviser at 250-721-7218.
Once you've been admitted to the university and registration is open, you will be registered in the course.
Visiting students must meet all course pre-requisite requirements and will be registered space permitting.
