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.
Aside from the view on top of Mt. Benson, the VIU library gives you the most beautiful view over Nanaimo. The urge to explore this beautiful scenery makes it even harder to motivate yourself to study. Your brain will switch to English very quickly, if you are travelling with Canadians and other study abroad students from all over the world. But pay attanetion: Don’t fall back into speaking German when you hang out with other German students! It is sheer impossible not to enjoy your time in Canada!
For me it was a good decision to study at Vancouver Island University. My semester started in September and ended in December 2015. I had a wonderful time and I would strongly recommend and encourage anyone who is considering to study abroad, to do it. I was impressed by Canada. Vancouver Island is such a beautiful place. Canadians are very friendly. I met great people and made new friends for life. The courses and assignments were very informative, practical and a perfect supplement for my studies in Germany.
If you have any questions just email me to email@example.com. I am looking forward to hear from you!
My semester abroad at VIU was a great adventure. I improved my English language skills and broadened my horizon in various directions. I met the nicest people in Canada and was able to enjoy the most breathtaking nature – On-Campus as well as on my way home to my host family.
I am looking forward to your questions. Talk to you soon! firstname.lastname@example.org«
