Hey everyone,

I know this is a forum for graduate school but decided I would post anyways. I have applied to the uvic bsw program and was wondering if anyone else has too? if so, have you heard back yet regarding your decision? The waiting is killing me!

I am currently in the UVic BSW program (finishing in August), and I know this probably won't help but I remember finding out near the end of April in 2012 when I was accepted. I found out much earlier from TRU but UVic was my first choice. I also wanted to pitch in that I absolutely love the program :) Good luck!

Hi everyone!!!  I also got an e-mail today that I am accepted into the distance program, pretty excited as I applied in a bunch of schools (including MSW), and this brings a light of hope :)  I have a little question as I don't seem to find the answer on the website, it says that the program can be completed in 4 semesters if done full-time, does that mean that it will take a year and a half to complete or two years.  Is keeping a part-time job manageable or classes are given during the day (not sure how the whole distance education works!)  

 

Also, how many people are in the distance program?  Is it a small class?  It says that about 400 people apply into the program.  Is there a waitlist?

 

I am really happy to be able to complete my studies via distance learning.  

 

Sorry for all the questions, and again, congrats to the people who got in :)

I am in the distance program at UVIC as well for BSW! I have not taken the distance program through UVIC before but I have done a lot of online courses through UFV where I am now, and they usually do not have specific times to do the courses, it usually is set up that you just have to complete certain tasks by the end of each week, so a part-time job should be fine. I am planning on getting the entire program done to graduate in the spring of 2015, and I have 6 young kids and run a charity, so it is possible :) If you do full courses each semester, then you could finish the entire program in 18 months thanks to summer courses :)

Thank you so much for responding!  I am also planning on finishing for the spring 2015, maybe summer 2015, but I was not aware of all the summer courses, I just signed in my uvic account and found that there are plenty of offerings during summer.  And the program looks very well run, I'm sold.  Looking forward to learning with you :)  I am a volunteer doula on my free time but don't have kids, you are a superwoman my dear, embarking on this journey with 6 kids, I guess I can totally acheive this.  Thanks :)

I got in too! I'm pretty pumped!they got over 500 applications this year, so it's cool we got in. I really love uvic's anti-oppression focus, so am excited to be able to  work towards my goals using uvic as a springboard.

Hey everyone,

My apologies for bringing up an old thread but I'm currently planning my application for September 2016 entry and it opens this December 1st. 

How competitive is the program? Did any of you have volunteer work prior to the application? Should you be well above the minimum GPA? I heard that having some for of experience in the field will increase your chances of getting accepted.
