CLIMB

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:

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

Bonus: You will be given the opportunity to schedule your own orientation and join in on info sessions that are interesting and relevant to you, just like in a virtual conference! Follow us on Instagram @climb.ufv to stay up-to-date.

Fall 2021

Intended for new international students who are starting their studies in September 2021. Discover services available to you including immigration workshops and student support, as well as build confidence in using myClass/Blackboard, the online learning platform where your classes will be held.

Orientation will be hosted online for the Fall semester while we determine the possibilty of an in-peron event.

When is my CLIMB starting?

Your CLIMB orientation will begin in the mid August. We will release exact dates as we finalize them closer to August. Check your UFV student email and our @climb.ufv instagram for an invitation email to register.

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.
