Camosun College is a 2-year post-secondary institution whose main goal is to provide for the educational and training needs primarily of individuals in Victoria, Southern Vancouver Island, and the Gulf Islands. However, since 1983, the College has expanded its educational reach internationally; that is, the College now provides study abroad opportunities to its students, accepts international students, and exports education to underdeveloped regions of the world in association with various international organizations. The College is committed to small class sizes in order to focus attention on the individual learner, and it currently has 2 campuses, Landowne, in Victoria, and Interurban, in Saanich.
