Want to know how you can become engaged in research at VIU?

There are many pathways to discovery. In order to know your options, we have assembled some of the credit and extra-curricular opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. These include courses, independent research, internships, research assistants, faculty led projects and working with one of VIU's Research Institutes, Centres or Labs.

Research and creative activity allow you to not only think outside the box, but to design, understand, question, apply, master and reinvent whatever you find out there. We encourage you to explore your options then get involved early and often so you can build your capacity in research and creative activity.  If you need funding to make this happen, check out the student research funding opportunities. We also encourage you to take advantage of ways to share your research at VIU's Annual CREATE conference or by presenting at a Conference in your own discipline.
