COVID-19: Updates and Information

To keep our students, employees and extended community safe and healthy and follow public health guidelines, Vancouver Island University is following a hybrid model of educational delivery for the 2020-21 academic year. This means that many courses will be completely online, or the amount of face-to-face learning has been greatly reduced.

Find the latest updates on VIU’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic on this website and more on our hybrid delivery model.
