Welcome to Vancouver Island University

From the Dean of International Education

Dr. Graham Pike, Dean of International EducationFor more than twenty-five years Vancouver Island University has been a leader in International Education, preparing Canadian and international students to contribute in diverse and innovative ways to a changing world. International students are warmly welcomed at VIU and provided with all the academic and social supports necessary for success in their study programs.

Each year, hundreds of international students graduate from Vancouver Island University with certificates, diplomas or degrees. Some go on to pursue further study in Canada and the U.S. or back in their home countries. Others start exciting careers using their newly acquired professional and practical skills. As VIU alumni they have established ties with friends and colleagues in Canada and around the world that will last a lifetime.

I encourage you to explore the benefits of our first-class, student-centred university for your academic, vocational or English Language studies that will prepare you to take your place in the world. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require more information.
