VIU Ambassador 2021

 

Hey everyone,

my name is Svenja and I´ve spent 2 Semester at VIU.

I am a Tourism Management student in my Bachelor of arts and each semester I have been taking 5 courses at Vancouver Island University in Nanaimo. Most of all I enjoyed the online marketing and social media marketing courses. The courses were pretty demanding, but I’ve learnt a lot!

I love that I had the option to take courses from different departments at VIU, I took e.g., Tourism, Management and Marketing courses. Overall, I have to say I enjoyed the Canadian university system a lot.  It is very different, compared to the system that I have been used to in Germany. At VIU I had deadlines pretty much each week but also learning felt more sustainable here.

Vancouver Island is a gem and if you haven´t had the chance to get here yet I highly recommend a semester in beautiful British Columbia. Make sure to take some time to check out Tofino, Mount Washington and all the other great places here. It doesn´t matter if you are coming here for a fall or spring semester, both will for sure be a unique and once in a lifetime experience!

If you have any questions at all, feel free to send me an email or contact me on instagram. All the best,

Svenja
