Our two campuses, Lansdowne and Interurban, serve approximately 19,000 learners a year in upgrading, certificate, diploma, bachelor's degree, post-degree diploma and continuing education programs.

Each year Camosun welcomes over 1,200 Indigenous students from First Nations, Métis, and Inuit groups, and over 2,100 international students from more than 80 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.

Wide range of programs

Our education offerings include university transfer and applied degree programs; career and trades trainingupgrading 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.
