Orientation for international students

Before you come to Canada, we have lots of great information and activities to help you prepare for life at UFV. Learn what to expect when you arrive, how to set up your UFV accounts, how to prepare for your first semester and attend your first week of classes, and so much more!

Attend orientation: CLIMB

Four weeks before your semester begins, we will invite you to join CLIMB, our orientation for new international students. Get live sessions, drop-ins, and check-ins, and get info about important things that you need to know.

We strongly recommend that you attend these sessions, as we will be sharing information that you need to know.

Set up your UFV accounts

Learn how to set up three important UFV accounts, including:

  • myUFV: Your student services hub
  • myMail: Your official UFV email account
  • myClass: Your online learning platform

Prepare for your first semester

Plan carefully for your first semester. Make sure you know dates and deadlines, how to access your courses, and how to learn more about your program and what you can do with it.

Attend your first week of classes

As an incoming international student, learn everything you need to know to attend your first week of classes.
