Under Canadian legislation, you do not need a student visa (study permit) to attend; however, you will need a letter of acceptance from the University of Victoria and a receipt for your tuition deposit before leaving your home country. You may be required to obtain a temporary resident visa in order to enter Canada for the term of study. You will be required to pay the full tuition fees by bank transfer in order to receive a Letter of Acceptance/Invitation.
If you plan to travel to the United States while you are in Canada, ensure that you discuss this with your local immigration office to see if any additional paperwork is required before entering the US.
All participants in the SGBS program must have medical insurance prior to arrival. Medical insurance is the individual responsibility of each student.
Remember, when you are making your flight arrangements, that Victoria is located on Vancouver Island, west of the city of Vancouver, Canada and north of Seattle, USA. Therefore, make sure your travel agent knows that your final destination is Victoria and not Vancouver. Students who arrive in Vancouver will have to find their own transportation to Vancouver Island and the university.
Students are required to have a minimum TOEFL 45 or an IELTS 5.0 or an equivalent English language level course in order to be accepted into the SGBS program. If you do not have an IELTS/TOEFL score or its equivalent, please complete the online registration form including the last section, which is an English language self-assessment form.

“Like every international student, I was scared and confused about living and studying in an unfamiliar country before I got here, but all considerations were gone after I met our fantastic coordinators, knowledgeable professors, friendly local volunteers and other awesome diverse exchange students! Speaking of our routine, we usually had classes from 8:30 a.m. till 4 p.m. in a well-equipped auditorium with a lunch break in between, and ISIBM scheduled us to explore the beautiful city, like whale watching and hiking, in our spare time. Moreover, the professors at UVic business school lived up to their reputation of leading one of the best business schools in Canada, and all the content they taught that was related to business is still useful for me. I’m so glad I joined the ISIBM program and it definitely changed my career and my whole life.”
