University of Manitoba – western Canada’s first university. Founded more than 137 years ago, and located in the heart of the country, we are the region’s largest and only research intensive university offering over 100 degrees, diplomas, and certificates – more than 60 at the undergraduate level including professional disciplines such as medicine, law, and engineering.

Our energetic university community is comprised of close to 30,000 students, 8,700 faculty and staff, and 190,000 alumni. Nearly 13 per cent of our current students are international, representing close to 104 countries.

The University of Manitoba is located on Anishinabe and Metis traditional land and is home to a thriving community of Indigenous researchers, staff and more than 2,000 First Nations, Metis and Inuit students, including over 150 graduate students — one of the largest Indigenous student bodies in the country.

With a strong legacy of excellence to guide us, the University of Manitoba and its dynamic community of researchers, students, teachers and staff, are addressing the challenges facing Canada and the world in the 21st century.

The International Centre for Students (ICS) provides support for ALL University of Manitoba students.

We offer programs and services to help international students before and after their arrival to ease their transition to Canada and ensure their experience is enjoyable, safe, and successful.

The ICS office also provides programs and resources for internationally-minded students looking for opportunities both inside and outside of Canada.

Our Exchange Programs make studying abroad affordable and accessible.
The World W.I.S.E. Resource Centre can help students plan for work, study, or travel throughout the world.

Through the ICS office, all University of Manitoba students have the opportunity to internationalize their education and gain cross-cultural experiences without leaving Winnipeg. Our office also serves the larger university community by providing support and assistance to staff and faculty.
