Are you wondering if graduate school is for you? Come to VIU's first online Graduate Programs Expo on September 15.

September 10, 2021 - 10:45am

Students who are contemplating the next step in their post-secondary careers can come to Vancouver Island University’s (VIU’s) first-ever online Graduate Programs Expo on September 15.

Graduate programs build on what students learned in undergraduate degrees and are more highly specialized in a particular area of study. VIU has a range of graduate options to choose from, from master’s degrees, to advanced diplomas, to certificates, to enhance the education students have already received and help propel them into the next step in their careers.

At the expo, attendees will be able to:

  • Meet instructors and ask questions about the graduate programs they are interested in;
  • Learn about support services such as scholarships, internships and research opportunities;
  • Get a real sense of what grad school is like and how it’s different from undergraduate programs;
  • Receive advice on what to consider if you are thinking about graduate school;
  • Go through an overview of the graduate school application process.

The event is hosted through an online event platform called PheedLoop that allows participants to scan the different program booths and visit with faculty to learn more about programs, much like walking into an in-person conference room. Participants will be automatically entered into a contest to win a $1,000 tuition credit towards their fall 2022 semester tuition. The event runs from 4-8 pm on September 15, 2021.
