Are you gearing up for university studies and feeling a bit uncertain about whether you have all the skills you'll need to be successful? We've got you covered with VIU's Foundations for Success program.

This 15-week program will help you get ready for university studies, boost your confidence, and set you up for academic success. The program takes students through six extended learning courses, and includes courses on writing, strategies for online learning, presentation, and communication skills training. These academic and career preparation courses give you the foundational blocks to succeed academically.

Students have the option to take one or all of the courses in the program, which can be taken before you begin university studies, or after you have begun your academic program at VIU.


These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
