To attend a course at Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre (BMSC), you must be registered in the course at a member university. The only exceptions are non-credit (auditing) students. We will send you a document with the course codes required to register. Most BMSC courses are UVic, UBC, UBCO, SFU, U of C and U of A courses – please check the course codes document carefully. In some cases and for some courses, we will work with your university department to manually register you (find specific info in the course codes document).
International students on exchange to a member university register at the member university. Students from non-member universities must register at the University of Victoria before arriving at BMSC. Let us know if you have difficulty registering. You can also find registration and transfer instructions here.
You MUST be registered in the course BEFORE arrival at BMSC. Please check your online student profile at your university to make sure the course is listed as registered 2-3 weeks before arriving for your course.
