Why should I attend?

This is your chance to learn all about VIU’s 120+ programs and the many services and supports available to students. Learn what it’s like to be a student here, explore our beautiful, ocean-view campus on a tour, take in a sample class or lab, and find out how you can prepare for a great career with post-secondary studies.

Who should attend?

Anyone interested in post-secondary studies should attend – from high school students and their parents to those people who’ve been out of school awhile and are ready to explore their options. In high school, in a job but thinking about university, or parent to a high schooler, this event is for you!

What can I do?

You can see what student life is like on our 92-acre Nanaimo campus, take in a sample class led by a VIU professor or a senior level student, or meet with a VIU Recruitment Officer to get your questions answered. See more below for all we have planned. It’s all very casual and it will be FUN! (Join us for lunch from 12-1.)

Is it free?

Yes it is! We are asking our guests to register so we can ensure we have the resources and lunch for everyone, however registration is not mandatory. All welcome! Register for “Experience VIU”
