From the Dean of International Education
For more than thirty years Vancouver Island University has been a leader in International Education, preparing Canadian and international students to contribute in diverse and innovative ways to a changing world. International students are warmly welcomed at VIU and provided with all the academic and social supports necessary for success in their study programs. Canadian students are encouraged to participate in exciting and memorable Education Abroad experiences, including field schools, internships and professional practicums. The VIU campus is a truly global community, enriched by the perspectives and visions of over 2,000 international students from more than 85 countries.
I encourage you to explore the benefits of our first-class, student-centred university for your academic, vocational or English Language studies that will prepare you to take your place in the world. Each year, hundreds of international students graduate from Vancouver Island University with certificates, diplomas or degrees and find rewarding employment in Canada and around the world. As VIU alumni they have established ties with friends and colleagues that will last a lifetime.
Vancouver Island University broadens your World View. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require more information.
