Start climbing your mountain.

Attend our virtual orientation events for international students, wherever you are!

Welcome to the CLIMB! 

All of us at UFV International are pleased to welcome you and many others like you from over 75 different countries to British Columbia, Canada, and our UFV community. We know that starting your studies at UFV is a unique and exciting experience which is why we have created CLIMB, your international student orientation. 

Your CLIMB begins 4 weeks before the semester starts to ensure a slow and comfortable pace while you prepare to become a UFV student. Through live sessions, drop-in style check-ins with the Global Engagement team, and tons of resources, you will get information on:

  • Travelling to Canada during COVID-19 and Quarantine
  • Medical Insurance
  • Online learning
  • Campus Resources and Academic Support Services

Follow us on Instagram @climb.ufv to stay up-to-date.

Don't worry! We have made all of our CLIMB sessions available on our archives page so you can catch up or review your orientation. There is no need to register or access the archives through Cvent, the platform where CLIMB was hosted.

UFV is awesome! It provides small classrooms for better student and prof interaction. You can get involved in clubs and associations. And if you have any problems, there are always helpful staff members who will support you.
