What our students say


Even though everything is online right now, receiving help and connecting with other UFV faculty, staff and students electronically helps to keep our community intact.

My professor Claire Carolan was instrumental in making my first online course stress free. She was very clear with her instructions, provided supportive answers and posted her assignments into Blackboard in a timely manner.

UFV Teaching and Learning Centre helped me make a smooth transition for using my laptop for online courses. The Academic Success Centre and UFV Library resources were also very useful to me with doing my assignments.

The thing I liked most about doing online courses at UFV was the care of my instructors. Even though we as students are working on our own time and self-managing, our professors put in so much time and care into making sure we have what we need to be successful. They truly care about their students' success and are always available for extra help.

Take advantage of everything UFV has to offer! There are so many ways to get involved and if you can't find the opportunity you're looking for, I guarantee you UFV will support you in creating it.
