Study where the world connects with nature
Vancouver Island is a popular destination for recharging and spending time outdoors.
VIU offers easy access to the wild and natural beauty the Island is famous for. We have the mildest climate in Canada, so you can play outside all year.
And if you crave big-city experiences, the city of Vancouver is only a 1.5 hour ferry ride away.
Study breaks that include outdoor activities are good for a healthy life balance. With hiking and cycling trails within minutes of campus, that balance is easy to achieve at VIU.
