Located in the beautiful Fraser Valley just east of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) is a fully accredited, public university that enrolls approximately 15,000 students per year. UFV is large enough to offer variety, and yet our small class sizes allow students to get to know their instructors and learn in a hands-on environment. We offer more than 100 programs, including two master’s degrees, 15 bachelor’s degrees, majors, minors, and extended minors in more than 30 subject areas, and more than a dozen trades and technology programs. UFV is committed to excellence in post-secondary education through programs that serve the diverse needs of the Fraser Valley region. We view education as an ongoing process essential for both career progress and actualizing human potential. We make the university accessible to students with diverse backgrounds and goals, while rewarding academic success and maintaining high standards. We value and treat students as mature individuals, and encourage intellectual, cultural, creative, ethical and social development in order to prepare our graduates for their roles as productive citizens of an increasingly complex and pluralistic society. We place a high value on environmental, social and economic sustainability in all our endeavours.

Our college has academic tie-up with the Johnson and Wales University. Our students can directly enroll for further studies in the University after completion of their degree programme (12+3), avoiding the mandatory 16 years of study. We are the only college in Western India offering this facility to students.
