Fall Quicklinks:   September | October | November | December
Winter Quicklinks:   January | February | March | April | May


Please note:

  • The same workshop offered at Bannatyne campus may be shorter than that offered at Fort Garry, due to schedule restrictions.
  • Ensure that you sign the attendance sheet at workshop start, or you will not be able to claim the workshop on your co-curricular record.
  • The workshop registration system may not work as expected with Internet Explorer 8.0 or earlier versions.
  • All of our workshop presenters are volunteering their time to the GradSteps program. Their presentation, number of handouts, and continued involvement in the program are all based on the number of registered students. As such, we ask that students make every effort to attend those workshops for which they are registered. If unable to attend, please cancel your attendance prior to workshop start by either logging in to the system and declining, or by emailing graduate.studies@umanitoba.ca.
