Overcoming Barriers

Author: Austin White

Hello, my name is Austin White, and I am volunteering as an exchange agent for the education abroad department at VIU.

I am going into my fourth and final year at VIU in Computer Science. I did an exchange in the spring semester of 2020, to the university of Hertfordshire in the United Kingdom. Before attending school, I was able to travel to Munich, Germany and Prague, Czechia. During my travels and studies, I was able to meet several new people and quickly make new friends from all over the world.


This summer I plan on highlighting the costs of an exchange, and the opportunities to reduce the cost. I hope to encourage new students to begin planning for an exchange early, and work towards becoming a global citizen.
