Welcome to the Centre for Experiential Learning!

The Centre for Experiential Learning (CEL) offers courses that contribute to academic success. These courses help students within Co-operative Education and Internship programs find work experience within their fields of study. Student learning is enhanced when integrated with academic and experiential education. Upon graduation, students who participate in these programs transition into the job market with sought-after skills and experience.


Integrated Learning at Vancouver Island University

Hay ch qa’ sii’em siye’yu mukw mustimuxw.

We, the Centre for Experiential Learning, would like to acknowledge and thank the Coast Salish people on whose traditional territory Vancouver Island University resides. In Nanaimo, the Snunéymuxw First Nation, in Cowichan, the Cowichan Tribes, and in Powell River, the Tla’amin First Nation. We appreciate and value the opportunities to share experiences, learn and live together. VIU is strongly committed to a culturally responsible partnership with all Aboriginal peoples in the region, as are we at the Centre for Experiential Learning.
