Courses for general interest

In higher education, it's easy to focus on academic requirements and the pursuit of career-related goals. However, there's immense value in venturing into the unknown and taking a course purely for the joy of learning.

Our courses in Continuing Studies at UVic are designed for community learners who are interested in pursuing personal passions or balancing academic commitments.

Whether it's exploring a new curiosity or interest, nurturing a lifelong love of learning, or simply seeking a break from the pressures of academia, these courses provide a refreshing change of pace.

Beyond enhancing your skills and well-being, our courses also equip learners with transferable skills that can enrich your personal growth or professional development goals. By pursuing knowledge on your own terms, you can gain new inspiration or fulfillment in your future endeavours.
