At VIU we believe that Education Abroad is an effective strategy to prepare our graduates for an increasingly interconnected world and competitive global economy.

We offer exciting and challenging opportunities for all students to expand their education through overseas exchanges, field schools, summer intensive programs, co-ops, internships, practica, graduate research and project work resulting in a truly world class learning experience. Students earn credit towards their diploma or degrees, gain international experience and develop intercultural skills that are highly valued among employers.

Students who participate in Education Abroad report higher motivation for learning, stronger interpersonal and intercultural skills with peers and faculty, a greater sense of global citizenship and more confidence in pursuing their chosen career path.
