UFV’s Centre for Indo Canadian Studies announces the publication of
New and Selected Non-fiction
The University of the Fraser Valley’s long association with writer Shauna Singh Baldwin will be strengthened this fall when the university’s Centre for Indo Canadian Studies publishes Baldwin’s first work of non-fiction.
In Reluctant Rebellions: New and Selected Non-fiction, Baldwin presents essays and speeches on the act of writing as a feminist author, while at the same time writing about the resistance of cultural communities to false presumptions and definitions imposed by the dominant community.
Welcome to UFV

UFV India prepares you for a cultural and social integration while you hit the ground running when you take seamless transfers to UFV Canada campus after first, second or third year of your education.

We encourage you to engage equally with our Alumni and current students who are the true testaments to our commitment and success.
Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA)
Business studies in North America are incomplete without teaching an applied business curriculum, accompanied by in-class activities, individual assignments, hands-on projects, and industry case studies, with a business simulation model that helps you develop a cognitive and entrepreneurial skills of managing and understanding key business principles. After all business is practice, and not a theory. Start your Canadian BBA at UFV India while being introduced to an applied education format so that nothing overwhelms you when you take your campus transfers to Canada. Be prepared for a different pedagogy near the comfort of your home, among friends and find your wings before you soar and fly to North America.
Bachelor of Computer Information Systems (BCIS)
A much sought after course in North America and elsewhere, Bachelors in Computer Information Systems prepares you for both hardware and software professions, and most importantly, offers the most updated curriculum that is relevant for your careers in Canada or the world. BCIS will prepare you to become a versatile professional who takes part in building the digital future. The practical knowledge and skills that you will learn prepares you to start your own technology business, foster innovation in a global corporation, or apply technology to help solve the world’s most pressing issues.
Management Post-Degree Certificate (MPDC)
An opportunity that you have been waiting for a while. Your formal Indian education of 15 years limits you to apply for a North American Master program since it requires sixteenth year of parchment. And you end up spending hugely on tuition, lodging and travelling costs to acquire that sixteenth year of education. Not anymore. UFV India introduces a Management Post Degree Certificate (MPDC) that provides you that much sought after sixteenth year parchment at one third the cost, while being in India. Start at UFV India with one year MPDC program and be eligible to apply to a North American University for Master’s program or at our partner, University of Windsor, Ontario for their Master of Management programs. The seats are always limited and will be offered to the deserving.
‘Overwhelming’ is one emotion that describes my experience at UFV Chandigarh campus. I wanted to explore Canada for my overseas education until I discovered UFV India campus. It’s one of its kind in India, where I sit among friends while getting oriented to North American education. I am sure that I will be far better prepared, and placed to succeed in Canada or the world, having started at UFV India.
I came to UFV India on a very skeptical note, thinking to transfer to Canada after my first year, deciding to stay for another. It is unbelievable how committed our UFV tutors and the entire team is to our success. Be it extra-curricular activities like ‘Toastmasters club’, where I have honed my personal speaking skills and shunned my shyness, to etiquette learning classes, we are truly preparing for the world. I honestly suggest everyone to explore UFV India once before they take a straight plunge into the unknown.
There’s education in a formal setting, and education in an informal setting, and I feel as though I’ve gotten the best of both worlds while studying at UFV Chandigarh. I strongly believe that I can speak on behalf of majority of the students at UFV India when I say it’s become second nature to put heart into everything we do, thanks to the never ending support of the staff and faculty members. UFV India is different from UFV Canada in all of the best ways. I feel as though I’m right at home while studying at UFV Chandigarh, having all of the luxuries of the modern world, yet having exposure to the more rustic elements of the city and its culture has been so charming.
I plan to do my Master’s overseas, and a BBA at UFV provides me the credits that are recognized and transferable. Applied education and relevant industry interaction are a true hallmark of my education. Being a girl, my parents are far more secure and comfortable while I am happy to be with my family at a time when I have just come out of school.
