Interested in learning about VIU? Join us for an info session or event.

Info sessions

When you attend an info session with a recruiter from the Office of Future Students you’ll get an overview of VIU. We’ll review the variety of programs VIU offers and the process for becoming a student. We will also give you a good picture of the services and supports for students.

We try to cover the wide range of supports and student life activities, which will include things like:

  • athletics
  • clubs
  • research
  • work integrated learning opportunities
  • student housing

We leave time in the presentation to answer your questions. We’ll also make sure you know how to connect with us for more information or help. Anyone can attend any of our info sessions, but our sessions focus on information for specific groups.

There are currently no events scheduled. Sign up for our newsletter, VIU Connect, for updates on the next session – and for news and details on other events.
