The choice of universities in British Columbia - Ash Kelly
"The good news is that Canada is home to so many great universities that it’s difficult to make a poor decision. That’s why choosing the school that best suits you requires going beyond rankings and reputation, and considering the unique culture and educational environment of your potential alma mater."
UFV is considered one of the top universities in British Columbia.
The Globe and Mail reported..."A higher percentage of first-year students reported participating in an internship or co-op program than at any other B.C. university. For instance, Cherie Enns’ urban planning students designed innovative urbanization proposals to revive an historic ornamental garden site that closed down several years ago. Students envisioned walkable, vibrant multiuse communities and presented their ideas to the local planning director".
