The 402 acre Gordon Head campus is located approximately seven kilometers northeast of downtown Victoria and includes a variety of open space and natural landscapes, within its suburban setting.
UVic is one of six research-intensive universities in the province of British Columbia. The university offers undergraduate degrees, plus masters and doctorates in 10 faculties and 2 divisions, which includes 48 individual academic departments.
Overall, however, UVic supports 58 departments, including a School of Public Health and Social Policy and a Division of Medical Sciences (but no hospital), which delivers the Island Medical Program in collaboration with the University of British Columbia, MD undergraduate program.
