My experience so far at UFV has been very exciting and happening. I have already gone on a couple of trips with my closest friends and it's only gonna get better when I start scouting for co-op placements and try and get relevant experience in my field. I wouldn't trade this for anything

    7.2 /10

    Based out of Abbotsford, the university is hardly an hour away from downtown Vancouver which is a hub for jobs in relation to business. There is no real need to move somewhere else in case of internships or co-op placements since everything is like an hour away. Coupled with a more than decent business program which isn't at all expensive is a great way to make a foothold in Canada

    Course Curriculum :

    From introduction to Business to Statistics, everything related to business is covered. As soon as 2nd year ends, students are made to choose one concentration they wanna forward for which is also known as a major. Then the curriculum is based around that one major.Industrial exposure through industrial visits are also done for a couple of courses in order to show students what it is like to work in that particular field.

    Exams :

    Admission requirements for my university includes only an IELTS exam wherein the candidate has scored more than 6.5. Mine was conducted in 2019 scoring 7.0 overall

    Placement :

    The median salary for someone working in Accounting is somewhere around 60000 CAD/year which is ALOT of money. QS has given UFV an overall rating of 5/5 for placements for it's business program which is true. Despite being a newer university in a developing part of the country, it has placed students in the best places around the country.

    Events :

    Engagement activities such as homecoming, student orientations were the way i met most of my friends i have here. Pairing up in group activities worked out for all of us in the long run. The campus is home to UFV Cascades which is one of the best teams for various sports in the country. We have access to various sports for both men and women such as volleyball, soccer and basketball. WiFi is everywhere on campus too.

    Scholarship :


    Faculty :

    Fairly low faculty to student ratio at 1:25. Most professors provide adequate resources and stay away from building reliance on expensive books and other resources. It's fairly easy to meet professors by meeting them on an mutually agreed time to clear doubts.

    Hostel :

    My place is in Abby itself which is a rather small town but has decent part-time work options and costs half of what it takes to live in Vancouver itself. We 4 people pay about 500 CAD/ month for a entire condo and we all have our own rooms with connected bathrooms
