Although Victoria is home to many retirees, who move here to enjoy the mild climate and golf courses, there is no shortage of students either. The city is home to the University of Victoria – one of Canada’s largest universities – and other universities, colleges, public schools and language schools.

To sum up
“Its immaculate streets of brightly coloured buildings seem to be repainted every day, its quiet people seem anesthetized by the Pacific breeze and its elegant harbour looks like a toy. If we speak of calm, of natural balance, Victoria is already a step ahead, but let’s not get confused: it’s not boring here!” Cinco Días – El País.
Studying in Victoria
It is the ideal destination for those who want to study English and have an authentic Canadian experience!
Highly recommended for nature lovers: the city is full of dream gardens with exotic plants due to its tropical climate, of which they are very proud.
