Camosun College is located in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia. Camosun College campuses are located on the traditional territories of the Lkwungen andW̱SÁNEĆ peoples. We acknowledge their welcome and graciousness to the students who seek knowledge here.
Our two campuses serve approximately 18,500 learners a year in certificate, diploma, Bachelor degree and continuing education programs. Each year Camosun welcomes over 1,000 Aboriginal students from 50 Nations including Métis and Inuit groups, and over 800 International students from 40 different countries.
The college welcomed its first students in 1971 and adopted the name “Camosun”, a local Lkwungen (Songhees) First Nation name meaning “where different waters meet and are transformed.” Today, Camosun College offers over 160 innovative programs to help meet the needs of students and communities in Victoria and beyond. Our education offerings include university transfer and applied degree programs; career and trades training; upgrading and preparatory programs; and continuing education. Camosun College has earned an outstanding reputation for teaching excellence – we’re proud of our faculty, staff and students, and the fact that we provide one of Canada’s best learning experiences.
We’re large enough to provide great services and facilities for a vibrant campus environment on beautiful Vancouver Island, yet small enough to offer students the individual support, care and attention not found in most post-secondary institutions.
