International orientation is a series of events that helps you get familiar with the University of the Fraser Valley. You get to learn all about classes, programs, and life in Canada. And you also make lots of new friends!
Orientation for international students is required, as you need to check in with your documents (study permit).
For the Fall and Winter semesters, in addition to International Student Orientation (ISO), international students also get to participate in the New Student Orientation (NSO) organized by UFV Student Life.
