UVic is #1

The University of Victoria has been recently been honoured with “top marks” for research and sustainability:

  • The 2015 Leiden Rankings have ranked UVic #1 in Canada for scientific impact in math/computer science and science/engineering
  • UVic is the only Canadian university to achieve a perfect score in the Princeton Review’s annual spotlight on “green campuses” which show an exceptional commitment to sustainability in their policies, initiatives and academic programs.

We´re proud to be part of the UVic community! Check out what our students have been up to lately. ☺
