Student Stories

The world is changing faster than ever

As we work through pandemic recovery, find solutions to climate change, and right the inequities and barriers facing people, particularly marginalized and Indigenous peoples.  We also face the reality of a job market that will demand 80% of people requiring post-secondary education, and 37% of new jobs coming from an expanding economy. Change is no longer an option. It’s a necessity. 

Future ready

At Camosun we prepare students for jobs that don’t yet exist, building the skills to successfully navigate and succeed in an ever-changing work landscape and rise to the challenges of today and the coming decades.

Megan Warrender studying

I love Camosun because it feels like a community.

“I never thought of myself as a strong student until I started at Camosun,” says Megan. “Here I am now, a tutor for a few subjects, getting good grades with the ability to apply the knowledge I’ve received.”
