I am proud to say that VIU has had a positive influence on my life. At the beginning of the year, I was looking for chance to enroll in an MBA or certificate program at VIU. I came to the University as an international student from Mongolia, not fluent in English. VIU offered me the opportunity to enroll in English as a Second Language (ESL) courses to improve my academic writing skills. The ESL program greatly helped me to learn more about American culture and society and to build various connections at once.
One thing I like the most about VIU is the affordable tuition rates. Students are offered flexible payment plans which are helpful for my personal finances as an international student. I also chose VIU because of the flexibility of the course options and convenience.
I can strongly say that VIU is a great place to study. As an international student, living far away from my home country and family, I do not always have someone to guide me through this University process, but the staff and faculty here at VIU are outstanding. They can do so much to improve your learning, living and health environment. It makes me happy to say that VIU has become a part of my family.
