Where we are shapes who we are
At the University of Manitoba, our strength comes from our place and our people. Manitoba is cold; it’s flat, it has a challenging climate. But this environment challenges us to adapt, innovate and invent. It compels us to grow and dares us to create. Join the graduate students and researchers who come here from every corner of the world. They are drawn to this place because it offers something that is rare and invaluable: a transformational experience.
From here, you can go anywhere.
The University of Manitoba is a member of the U15 and is ranked one of the top 50 research-intensive universities across Canada. Every year our faculty members secure more than $160 million in external funding. Experience a university that is:
Founded over 130 years ago, and located in the heart of Canada—Winnipeg, Manitoba—the U of M is the region’s largest research-intensive and only medical doctoral university offering more than 100 academic programs. Choose from: 47 doctoral, 90 master's, and one diploma program.
We offer an enriched student experience, from new technologies and ways to learn in and outside of the classroom, to a balanced approach to life that promotes physical activity and wellbeing. Our Fort Garry campus is alive day and night as thousands of football fans and concert-goers fill the world-class Investors Group Field.
One quarter of our student population is international. In fact, the mid-sized city of Winnipeg (population: 780,000) is known for its diversity, along with its vibrant arts and culture scene, and friendly people.
Graduate students at the University of Manitoba play an integral role in the research that will define our future and we are committed to providing financial support to attract leaders. Learn more about:
