Camosun College is located in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia, with campuses on the Traditional Territories of the Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples.
Each year Camosun welcomes over 1,100 Indigenous students from First Nations, Métis, and Inuit groups and over 1,700 international students from more than 70 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.
Education offerings include university transfer and applied degree programs; career and trades training; upgrading and preparatory programs; and professional studies and industry training.
Camosun College has earned an outstanding reputation for teaching excellence.
The college is 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.
