Here's what to take in your first year at Camosun if you're planning to transfer to UVic.
This program is competitive entry. At a minimum, you must get at least an overall GPA of a B but your grades are only one factor for admission. Details available online: UVic's School of Exercise Science, Physical & Health Education.
You can take some of the courses that meet admission requirements for this program. Camosun does not offer the Year 2 courses you need for this major, so you'll need to start planning your admission to UVic early in your studies.

Year 2 and beyond
Because not all course work needed is available at Camosun College, you will need to start discussions with UVic about planning your admission and transfer to their program, and how you will transition there.
