What we do

The recruitment team focuses on attracting students to VIU as a first-choice university while ensuring VIU is the right fit for the student. We discuss programs, admission requirements, student housing options, meal plans, tuition, recreation and athletic opportunities, parking options, general questions about university life, and many other questions about becoming or being a student at Vancouver Island University.

As part of our recruitment efforts, our services include (but are not limited to):

  • Attending recruitment events such as Post-Secondary British Columbia (PSBC), Alberta Out of Province (AOOP) and Canadian University Events (CUE) on behalf of VIU
  • Attending Education and Career Fairs on behalf of VIU
  • Hosting recruitment events – both on and off campus – to recruit students
  • Provide campus tours to prospective students
  • Support faculties in their efforts to recruit students
  • Work with faculties to support programs experiencing declining enrolment
  • Develop creative and effective recruitment strategies
  • Review data to assist in recruitment activities
  • Gain perspective on the needs of future students, parents and counsellors
