Research in Science

Not many universities provide you with an opportunity to be involved in research at the undergraduate level. At UFV, not only do we encourage our faculty to incorporate research in their teaching, but we also support our students to conduct research and share their findings.

Engagement in research early in your academic career can help you obtain scholarships, awards, and graduate school positions. This is part of UFV's commitment to provide you with the best undergraduate education in Canada.
