Partners In Learning

The Centre for Experiential Learning has developed strong relationships with employers, not only locally, but nationally and internationally. The learning opportunities that employers provide, through co-operative education and internships, contribute to student success. Because of the impactful role that employers play in the education of VIU students, they have become our Partners in Learning.

Funding resources that make it possible to hire a student can be provided through Government programs such as Canada Summer Jobs and Career Focus.

What our Partners in Learning say about their experiences with VIU students:

Photo Adriana Sharoun"I was incredibly happy with Vanessa, she was an asset to out team and it felt great to be able to work with a student. We regularly compared academic training to hands-on experience. She was eager to learn, observe, participate, and always had insightful questions! It was important for me to participate in VIU's program and support up and coming designers. Supporting students while they work towards completing their degree is important. Formal education for this industry is something we strongly support."
