VIU Ambassadors

The Ambassadors of Vancouver Island University (VIU) in Canada look forward to hearing from you!

Are you interested in studying abroad at Vancouver Island University (VIU) in Canada and would like to know first-hand what it’s like to live and study in beautiful British Columbia? We are sure you have a number of questions that could be answered best by someone who has actually studied at Vancouver Island University – someone who has undergone the same application process and who knows VIU like the back of their hand.

Our Ambassadors have all completed a study program at VIU and finished their study abroad adventure in Canada quite recently. They look forward to supporting you and to helping you with all questions concerning studying and living at VIU.

Which course is the best? Which professor is the funniest, and what does a typical study day at Vancouver Island University look like? Where should you live in Nanaimo, and how do students at VIU spend their leisure time? – Contact our Ambassadors and get first-hand insights by VIU alumni. Our Ambassadors surely have some tips you wouldn’t be able to find in a guidebook.

Studying at VIU was the perfect decision for my semester abroad. The island is a great spot for surfing, hiking, whale watching, canoeing, walks on the beach, and going out at night – if you want, all in one day! It is nearly impossible not to find any friends here. I have been back to Vancouver Island twice after my semester abroad, and I am planning to live there for another year.

Email me if you have any questions.

My semester abroad at VIU was the best time during my entire studies. I experienced a totally different living and learning environment, which gave me the chance to learn more than I did back home. During my time abroad I grew personally, and I am glad to have picked VIU as the place to make this happen.

If you have any questions just email me, or contact me on Facebook.

Five months in Canada and I fell in love with this country! Studying at VIU for one semester, I not only improved my English skills enormously but also experienced an unfamiliar, beautiful country full of great people. I felt welcome from day one and was stunned by the breathtaking landscapes and nature. Vancouver Island is a great place for both surfing and skiing.

I look forward to answering your questions – write me! 🙂
