Vancouver Island is a medium-scale island at Canada’s west coast. Its name implies: Vancouver Island is located near British Columbia’s metropolis Vancouver and the region is mostly known for hosting the Olympic Winter Games in 2010 (Whistler), deep green forests, snow-capped mountains, broad coast lines and gorgeous landscapes.

If you consider going abroad for a Bachelor Canada is the perfect place: excellent universities, an outstanding educational system, and not as overrun by Europeans as other English-speaking countries. Vancouver Island is home to Vancouver Island University (VIU), one of British Columbia’s most popular universities that has become an insider’s tip for European students during the last few years.

Whereas studying abroad for one semester is compulsory as part of many study programs in Europe, completing a full Bachelor’s degree in Canada is special and therefore has even more advantages: spending four years in Canada provides you with the opportunity to completely immerse in the culture and to get a deep insight into everyday life in Canada. Moreover, a study abroad experience lasting over several years can improve your career chances enormously, as you stand out from the crowd.
