Where your learning takes flight!

We take pride in our connection to the world, and the contributions that Vancouver Island University students and faculty make at home and abroad.

Student mobility programs help to prepare VIU graduates for an increasingly interconnected world.

Students who participate in Education Abroad opportunities 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 in a competitive global economy.
